Evaluation of Reaching Communities Programme for Big Lottery Fund.
Client: Big Lottery Fund
Description: Our evaluation runs from January 2007 to December 2010 and includes surveys, case studies and self evaluation support to the projects funded by Reaching Communities.
"I have been really pleased with the work ECOTEC have done to date, and we have a very positive business relationship. Their evaluation plan is comprehensive and logically thought-through, with clear links between data collection all the way up to the overarching aim of the study. ECOTEC's annual reports and presentations have been clear and concise, their workshops with our projects have been impressive, and I have been impressed at their willingness to undertake extra work at short notice. I am looking forward to continuing to work with ECOTEC for the next two years."
Peter Bailey, Research & Learning team, Big Lottery Fund (June 2009).
