Totally Socially Mid-term Review
Coast and Vale Community Action (CAVCA) appointed IVAR as its independent reviewer of the Totally Socially programme.
Totally Socially, a three-year programme funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, has been established to build on CAVCA’s work in local communities, getting to know them better and what makes them ‘tick’. The programme aims to help people to turn ideas for their community into action, from finding solutions to challenges to keeping good things going. The underlying ethos is about putting communities in the lead, working with what is already there and not predicting the outcomes.
For this mid-term review, we were appointed to look at how Totally Socially has supported people in communities so far and what has been the most important learning along the way, approximately eighteen months into the three-year funding period.
