Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This document outlines a toolkit for use by organisations that deliver interventions to improve the health, happiness and wellbeing to young people in Scotland. It builds upon the empirical research carried out as part of the ‘Ingredients of Success’ study. That study consulted with practitioners who design and deliver interventions to young people and with young people participating in interventions to reveal their perceptions and experiences of evaluation and the information they require to support their evaluation activities. They viewed a simple toolkit as a valuable addition to the support they already receive in relation to evaluation (e.g. Evaluation Support Scotland http://www.evaluationsupportscotland.org.uk).

The toolkit outlined in this document provides some simple guidance on steps organisations can take to evaluate their work and links to a range of tools that have been developed to support them in evaluation activities. The toolkit provides a process starting with the purpose of evaluation and guiding practitioners through different steps to achieve a full evaluation of the impact of their interventions on young people’s health, happiness and wellbeing.
