• Description

This is a guide to evaluating community projects, based on work with 20 groups and projects across England and Wales. The guide was initially developed as part of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation's "Neighbourhood Programme" (2003-2006) that has sought to support community empowerment not through a major funding programme but through 'light touch' support and networking. Intended to help the organisations evaluate their work, the guide provides step-by-step advice on how to evaluate a community project which will be of interest to a much wider audience of residents, neighbourhood practitioners and policy makers at local, regional and national levels.
