Event description

Description

Age Action Alliance and Flourishing Lives invite you to our free workshop providing practical support for services for older people.

This is the latest in our popular series of talks exploring ideas and sharing knowledge across the sector.

This workshop is for organisations who want to develop evaluation methods for measuring the impact of their projects, programmes and policies. The focus will be on how these principles might be applied in working with older people, including those who are living with dementia. We will explore useful kinds of evidence, creative approaches and there will be an opportunity to consider these in relation to challenges and learnings from your own practice.

We are delighted to have Dr. Karen Gray from the University of Winchester speaking at the session. Dr. Gray is an experienced evaluator and researcher specialising in arts for health and wellbeing and with a particular interest in dementia. She is currently completing a PhD on the challenges of evaluating arts-based activities for people living with dementia at the University of Worcester and as part of the TAnDem Doctoral Training Centre, funded by the Alzheimer’s Society. Previously she was Research and Evaluation Manager at leading arts consultants, Willis Newson, where she delivered evaluation consultancy, training and mentoring.

The session will cover the following topics:

  • Defining your aims and objectives

  • Defining your outputs and outcomes

  • Methods of capturing evaluation data

  • Producing reports and materials

  • The opportunities and challenges of co-production

Join us to share ideas, refine your methods of evaluation and meet other progressive people who are striving to innovate and excel in services for older people.
