Evaluation of Grants Programmes

In the autumn of 2005, the Board of Trustees agreed to commission an independent and comprehensive evaluation of the Trust’s own grants programmes between 2003 and 2005. The programmes to be evaluated were only those developed and delivered by the Trust using the Trust’s own asset. The evaluation was not designed to look at the delivery of grants programmes funded by other grant-makers.

This decision was taken to enable the Trust to better understand how accessible the grants programmes were and to improve where possible on how the Trust operates in this capacity. It is the view of the Trustees that this is a critical issue due to the nature of the beneficiary group who can, as a result of the often very difficult circumstances in which they live, be hard to reach using conventional methods of communication and who often encounter considerably obstacles in accessing mainstream services.
