Join the National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP) for this webinar which will look specifically at what evaluation means within social prescribing and what outcomes can be usefully measured to take into account the impacts on people, systems and communities. Some of the approaches and tools which are available for you to use in your evaluations will also be covered.

NASP will discuss the particular challenges of evaluating social prescribing interventions, whilst outlining some of the key outcomes that can help build the evidence base and grow the movement.

You will hear from Ingrid Abreu Scherer from NASP and Marie Polley from the Social Prescribing Network, as well as a delivery organisation who have embedded evaluation in their practice.

This webinar will cover:

– Why evaluation is critical to understanding the difference you’re making

– How it can help you plan services and projects by refining your aims and objectives

– How it can help you learn and adapt your future activities

– Its importance to the wider system as it helps build the evidence base for social prescribing

– How it can also help you make the case to beneficiaries, partners and funders
