Practical approaches for demonstrating programme impact and value

May 21, 2015 at 8:52 AM

On June 29, Superu is sponsoring a free workshop in Auckland with Louise Morpeth from the Dartington Social Research Unit in the UK. In addition to being the keynote speaker at Superu’s annual Evidence to Action conference, Louise has agreed to present two workshops in Auckland and Christchurch. The workshops will focus on how to demonstrate programme impact and produce evidence in order to both attract and justify investment. This workshop is for NGOs, local and central government service providers who have the capacity and interest to expand the role of evaluation in their operations.

Louise has jointly run the Social Research Unit with Michael Little since 2010, although she first joined the Social Research Unit in 1997 to study for her PhD. She oversees the day-to-day running of the charity. She has a particular interest in advocating for the greater use of evidence-based programmes, practices, processes and policies in children’s services and has worked at the interface of research, policy and practice throughout her career. Louise led the groundbreaking work with Birmingham City Council to develop, implement and evaluate a £42 million invest-to-save strategy. She is currently working with a handful of local authorities trialing the use of evidence-based programmes as alternatives to care. She is also leading the replication of the US model ‘Evidence2Success’ in Scotland.

Where: Alexandra Park Function Centre (Hobson Room), corner Greenlane West & Manukau Road, Epsom, Auckland
