We’ve been commissioned to evaluate the impact of the work done so far by Windmill Hill’s Big Local scheme, in order to give direction for the final few years of the partnership.

We’ve been speaking to partnership members, partner organisations and young people to capture their stories on the impact of Big Local. We’re also interviewing key personnel involved in the projects that the partnership have initiated, from the project managers to the project beneficiaries, to gain feedback on project performance outcomes. Additionally, we’re engage with the the general public through surveys and street interviews to gauge awareness of the partnership, community involvement and area satisfaction, amongst other indicators.

We aim that this evaluation will put the Windmill Hill partnership in good stead to complete the 10 year programme in a way that maximises community benefit, and makes the most of the final few years of funding.

Here’s a couple of pictures taken by Your Back Yard on visits to Windmill hill:
