Evaluation

 

 

Guidelines for evaluation

QA, monitoring and evaluation are closed connected in a well organised project.

 

The work programme consisted of eight chronological work packages that correspond to the eight main step to reach the conclusion of the project, as well as three transverse work packages (dissemination, evaluation, and management) that support and supplement the completion of the work programme.

 

The monitoring and evaluation of the project has consisted of evaluation questionnaires for each work package that all partners filled-in, backup check of the task flow by the coordinator, and common evaluations at the three partner meetings to assess the achievements of the planned key activities and deliverables.

 

Key points of our evaluation

In general, our evaluations of the project progress have been very positive. Except for the change of our Lithuanian partner in the start of the project, we have followed the initial project plan.

 

We made the main impact evaluation after the completion of the local pilot work in Nov 2014 (end of WP

5), where the project leaders conducted either oral evaluations or a combination of oral feedbacks and

filled-in questionnaires together with representatives from the volunteering guides, the involved main

stakeholders and the end-users.

 

The overall conclusions of the impact evaluations was very positive; but again this feedback was only

from persons involved in the local pilot work. We didn't succeed to make a more comprehensive impact

analysis with target groups outside the local areas with pilot work.

Impact invisaged

 

 

  • The new services will be incorporated to some degree in the ordinary activities of the Nordic-Baltic sector of voluntary arts and culture associations.
  • The concept will be known and gain political, ideological or financial support from main stake-holders.
  • The offerings will help parts of the senior citizens to a change, where they feel lesser excluded, gain more self-esteem, experience personal development and improve their quality of life.
