Home-Start Teignbridge commissioned Steve Allman to deliver a bespoke workshop on evaluation and impact. In consultation with the scheme prior to the workshop, Steve designed a programme to enable Home-Start staff and trustees to focus on key strategic issues and work towards an outline strategy.

By the end of the day, staff and trustees had produced an outline strategy, identifying core aims and an evaluation framework to evidence their impact. 100% of attendees said the workshop will impact on their work and 100% rated the workshop content, presenter’s knowledge/experience and delivery style as very good or good. Here’s what Home-Start Teignbridge Chair, Janet Jones, had to say about the workshop:

Home-Start Teignbridge asked Steve Allman to deliver a workshop on evaluation, linked to strategy. We’d heard good things about Steve from other Home-Start schemes and we weren’t disappointed. His knowledge and experience was very good and his delivery style ensured that everyone felt included and on track.

As chair, the key learning for me was the importance of focussing on strategy and not getting too tied down in the operational side of things. By the end of the day Steve had helped us to develop an evaluation framework to explain the purpose and impact of Home-Start Teignbridge more clearly. The workshop will certainly impact on our work and I highly recommend Steve to others.”
