Our Place adopts an outcomes-based mindset to evaluation, meaning we ‘start with the end in mind’ and then define what success will look like and the strategies and actions required to get there.

The Outcomes Framework sets out the results we seek to achieve in the long term, together with the evidence-based elements to be implemented across our sites and offers possible indicators to understand a) whether the approach was implemented as intended and b) to measure achievement or contribution towards the desired outcomes.

Our evaluation efforts align with this framework and seek to conduct both quantitative and qualitative evaluation activities across three primary areas: process, impact and economic value.
