Evaluation of the Next Steps Programme

Venture Trust has commissioned SMCI Associates to evaluate the impact of the Big Lottery funded “Next Steps” programme.

The research will enable Venture Trust and its stakeholders to understand the impact of each part of the “Next Steps” programme on the lives of participants and to what extent the programme has delivered the outcomes it set out to achieve.

The evaluation will provide learning outcomes for Venture Trust, and other stakeholders interested in either issues surrounding reducing (re-) offending for women caught up in the criminal justice system or the use of wilderness/outdoor activities within personal and social development with vulnerable groups.

The evaluation runs from 2015 to September 2017, and includes several elements, including a stakeholder survey which asks for your views. We would be very grateful if you would click on the link below to participate in the survey. It will take no longer than five minutes to complete and is completely anonymous.

If you have any queries about the survey, or would like any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr Sheila Inglis, Director, SMCI Associates, phone: 07894 337317.
