Evidencing our impact – celebrating the contribution of community food initiatives

Across Scotland community food initiatives are making a difference. Through improved access to food, communities address health inequalities and improve the health of individuals and families.

FREE 24-hour learning event
Luncthime 23 August to lunchtime 24 August
New Lanark Mill Hotel, New Lanark

Places are still available at this reconvened 24 hour learning event on evidencing impact.

This event will bring together people who have very different experiences of evaluation – those who are new to self-evaluation and those who have done lots of evaluation. Through exploring these different experiences and new tools/techniques for evaluation, we will highlight best practice for capturing evidence and further demonstrating the contribution made by community food initiatives.

We are working with a number of different organisations who will be involved in this event, including the Scottish Government, Evaluation Support Scotland, the BIG Lottery Fund and community food initiatives.

At the end of this event you:

  • will have increased awareness of the current policies influencing community food initiatives;
  • will have more knowledge and confidence to use different approaches for gathering and analysing evidence for self-evaluation;
  • will have learnt about how other community food initiatives are self-evaluating; and
  • will have influenced the next steps for CFHS to provide support for evidence and impact.

To secure your place, please complete the booking form (word 303 kb) and return to CFHS by 24 July. A programme (PDF 173 kb) is also available.
