These resources will support you to reflect on how you embed learning from evaluations into your ongoing work, as well as how you can build a culture that enables continuous learning and action.

An organisation received two years of funding to deliver a youth social action project. They were not able to secure additional funding to continue the specific project, however they were able to learn a lot about the benefits of connecting the young people who were involved with members of their local communities. At the end of the project, they ran two sessions with the young people who had been involved to develop some best practice tips on community engagement, and wrote this up as an internal guide. This guide helped to inform conversations that explored whether they could introduce a new community engagement strand to one of their core programmes – building on the learning from their social action project.
