The AD Trust’s trustees have agreed that evaluation must be an integral part of any project supported by the Trust. The trustees believe that this information is important to help charities improve their work, and raise further funding for replication of successful programmes.
The trustees are particularly interested in encouraging the use of longer-term evaluation/impact data (as opposed to outcome-data) to help understand and improve service provision.
The trustees recognise that performance tracking and donor communication can be an overhead above and beyond front-line service provision. The AD Trust is prepared to fund this type of work in addition to normal programme work.
