Claire Paterson-Young, Toa Giroletti

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned Report


This report provides an overview of the outcome evaluation of the BBO Working Progress programme delivered by Commsortia and its partner organisations between August 2016 and July 2019. The results presented in this overview are based on the analysis of survey data gathered from 337 programme participants and interviews conducted with delivery partners (N = 12) and programme participants (N = 40). The survey data was collected from programme participants at the beginning, in the middle (for interventions longer than three months), and at the end of an intervention on a voluntary and anonymous basis. The interview data was collected through semi-structured, face-to-face interviews with programme participants and delivery partners. Finally, the case study data was collected from delivery partners in either face-to-face interviews or through answers to a specific list of questions about clients in writing.
