Evidence Champions 2016-17: Funding what works
Fri, October 14, 2016, 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM BST
Have you ever felt unsure which projects will deliver the best possible outcomes for children and young people?
Have you ever wondered how, in practice, you can base your funding decisions on evidence of ‘what works’?
Project Oracle, children and youth evidence hub, is offering a programme of intensive training and support for funders and commissioners to support you to overcome these challenges, to promote the impact agenda and to become an Evidence Champion. The programme will include:
Training on understanding evaluation, evidence and impact estimation
Regular one-to-one support tailored to your needs
In-depth advice on how to compare applications to identify those with the strongest evidence of impact
Access to ongoing support from the Evidence Champions community
We would like to invite you to a free taster event at City Hall on Friday 14th October, 3.30pm-5.00pm, to find out more about Evidence Champions and how it could benefit you. To register your attendance sign up here.
The event will include an introduction and Q&A with evaluation expert, Sue Holloway (Project Oracle CEO), followed by detailed information about the upcoming Evidence Champions seminar series and how you can get involved. An Evidence Champion alumna, Susan Crisp (Education Policy Manager, Greater London Authority) will also be speaking to share her experiences of Evidence Champions and to answer any of your questions.
RSVP: Please RSVP via Eventbrite or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*If you are unable to attend the taster event but would be interested in signing up for the Evidence Champions support programme then please get in touch with email@example.com.
