How faith-based organisations can evaluate their work
Faith-based organisations are making big contributions to health and wellbeing in their communities. Whether that’s through obviously health-related projects, or more indirectly – for example through poverty relief, youth clubs or by providing people with social connections – there is a wealth of activity going on.
FaithAction wants to build up the evidence base that shows the effectiveness of this work in the UK. We’ve produced the guidance and collections of resources below to help with this.
