Does it work? A guide to evaluating community capacity initiatives
How do you know if the services you commission or provide are going to build and sustain people's social capital?
Does it work?, an evaluation guide developed by Catherine Wilton and the Building Community Capacity network, suggests methods organisations can use to assess the impact of their work on people's social networks.
The guide is aimed at services, providers as well as community groups, and complements Are we there yet? - a planning tool and checklist for building community connections.
