Evaluation Within UK Trusts and Foundations
Practice, Use and Challenges
This report presents the first ever picture of evaluation within larger trusts and foundations in the UK. It is based on the findings of an online survey completed by 34 trusts and foundations.
The survey was designed to address a gap in knowledge identified at the inaugural UK Evaluation Roundtable in March 2014 to:
- Understand the range of evaluative activities that trusts and foundations are undertaking and how these activities are being organised and invested in
- Explore perceptions about how well trusts and foundations are making use of evaluative information to inform their work
- Explore the challenges that trusts and foundations are facing in relation to their evaluation practice
