Blending stats and stories in your evaluation report – free peer learning event

Free peer learning event

Evaluation Support Scotland has developed a new resource to support third sector organisations who work with communities. The ‘Stats & Stories’ resource is a short guide to help you unpack how that you can use words and numbers more effectively to shine a light on the difference your work is making to the people and communities you work with.

We are running a free half day peer learning event to test out the resource. It will be an interactive afternoon where you’ll be able to:

  • unpack some of the challenges of using different types of evaluation evidence together in a report
  • think through how you can use this approach in your evaluation reporting
  • get feedback on your latest evaluation report in a supportive environment (please bring your evaluation report with you on the day)
  • learn with and from other third sector organisations
  • give your input what does/ doesn’t work well in our new resource 

Date: Monday November 5th 2018

Time: 1.15pm registration for 1.30pm start – 4.30pm finish.
