How was it for you? Learning events instead of written reports

The Health and Social Care ALLIANCE Scotland (the ALLIANCE) wanted to try out a new way of working with projects to find out about impact and learning.  Instead of requiring full written reports they brought funded projects together in 3 learning events throughout 2019, facilitated by ESS.  Each event involved a pre-questionnaire and lots of discussion.  ESS wrote and shared a report after each. 

We asked funder and funded to tell us about their experiences of trying out this way of “reporting”.   Some common themes emerged.

Below, Lara Murray, Fund Manager with The ALLIANCE, and Sarah Cleary, Health and Employability Service Manager, Volunteer Edinburgh, give their impressions about working in this innovative way, the benefits, and the surprises.
