“Home-Start Kernow selected Steve Allman by interview after inviting tenders for the external evaluation of our Big Lottery Fund project. Steve impressed us, not only with an in-depth understanding of Home-Start but also his grasp of what we wanted to achieve. His people skills and research experience made a big difference in engaging families, volunteers and external stakeholders.
After receiving our first year report we were pleased that his findings independently validated our own perceptions with additional insights of his own and fresh suggestions from all the stakeholders. We will now be able to refine our approach and evaluation going into year 2 and 3 ensuring the charity continues to develop.”
