Evaluation of Women’s Work
Women’s Work is a charity which aims to improve the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged and vulnerable women. They target women who have complex and multiple needs, including those affected by drug and alcohol misuse, offending, women exploited through prostitution and those fleeing domestic abuse. CFE was commissioned to evaluate the impact of 4 projects supporting female street workers, female offenders, and families and young people affected by drug and alcohol misuse and to make recommendations for improving monitoring and evaluation processes and procedures. The evaluation included a review of existing outcomes frameworks and was supplemented by qualitative research conducted with service users and key stakeholders. The evaluation report provided robust, independent evidence of impact, alongside recommendations for ongoing data collection, and was identified as a key component in helping the organisation secure substantial funding.
