Housing related support consultation- Closing date 1st July 2018

Source By: The Advocacy Project

Hackney Council are changing the way they commission Housing Related Support, Floating Support and Housing with Care. The Advocacy Project are currently gathering people’s views to feed into this consultation.

It would be great if you could promote our online questionnaires – one for those people who use your services and who are getting housing related support but who can not attend an interview.  We also would love you fill our the providers questionnaire yourselves – this is for any professional working in housing related support to get your views on what is working and what could be improved.  I have attached the two posters.  In addition to this we have a family and carers survey as well so I will attach that too in case you have access to any family/friends or carers of people who receive housing related support.

If you feel it would be appropriate we also have a poster in Turkish and an easyread pamphlet about the survey – let me know if you would like those and I will send them through.

We can interview people face to face if this is a preferred option or over the phone. (we pay service users £10 for each face to face or telephone interview but cant pay for online completion as these are totally anonymous)

Here are the online links for the consultation survey:

Creating a Theory of Change - workshop- 27th June 2018

Source By: NEF Consulting Limited

One-day workshop, 27 June, London

In this one-day workshop you will learn what a Theory of Change is, how to construct one, and best practice in conducting robust qualitative research. This is an ideal course for anyone starting or evaluating a social impact project, or for those looking to articulate or refine a strategy.

Using proven templates, NEF Consulting has constructed Theories of Change for a wide range of programmes. We have found that the best evaluations, including SROIs, are underpinned by strong Theories of Change developed early in the research process. 


• How to describe a Theory of Change and when it is appropriate to use it.

• The similarities and differences between a Theory of Change and a logic model or impact map.

• How to design a process and discussion guide for engaging with stakeholders.

• To use the component parts of a Theory of Change and communicate their strategic value.

• A personal approach to visualising and describing a Theory of Change.

• How to test and communicate your Theory of Change.

Topics covered include...

• The big picture: Theory of Change and its role in strategic planning and evaluation.

• Talking in outcomes: Theory of Change and other impact formats

• Collecting Theory of Change data: engaging with stakeholders

• Using the Theory of Change framework

• Next steps: planning, verifying and communicating findings.
