Keep calm, keep evaluating and keep it simple!

Graphic including the words 'Keep calm and keep evaluating. Keep it simple!'

On 12th May ESS hosted a virtual peer-learning webinar for third sector organisations struggling to keep up with their evaluation in Covid-19 times.

We know it’s tough – but you’re not alone! It’s definitely challenging, but it’s important to keep evaluating now to motivate staff and volunteers, to make sure you are reaching those who need you most, and to inform your future services and post-Covid-19 recovery. So our advice is to keep evaluating and keep it simple!

To get a sense of what others are doing to keep evaluating, you can watch the 14-minute recording of our ‘Evaluating at a time of change’ webinar presentation here, and download the slides which has notes on what other organisations have been doing.

At this time reflecting on your practice and taking stock of what you are evaluating may be useful. Here are some resources to help you do both:

Remember to keep checking our dedicated Covid-19 page which we are regularly updating with resources that can help you keep evaluating at a distance.

If you’d like us to facilitate a session with you and your colleagues to help you use these resources, please get in touch!
