Monitoring and evaluation
Recognising the importance that monitoring and evaluation have for the success of charities, social enterprises and community and voluntary organisations, Skills – Third Sector and Charities Evaluation Services have co-produced a set of good practice standards for monitoring and evaluation.
These standards offer a clear and simple framework for what you need to do to set up a monitoring and evaluation process for your organisation.
This is important not only to help you make the case to funders in a time of austerity, but also to make sure that you learn from both successes and mistakes to improve services.
There are four steps in the monitoring and evaluation process:
- planning for evaluation
- gathering evidence
- analysing the information
- and sharing the findings.
We will be producing a pocket guide for monitoring and evaluation shortly, they will be uploaded to this page as soon as they are available.
