Informing, influencing and improving health and social care.
“It was a pleasure working with the team at Evolving Communities and I thought the results captured, and the conclusions formed, accurately reflected the anecdotal data we gathered through the course of our work. It’s reassuring to know that the research results were consistent and to now have an evidence base to back up the theory. The project was turned around so quickly and I think we produced a very robust piece of work, given the time constraints.”
Dan Harbour, Managing Director at Beacon Continuing Healthcare
“Evolving Communities involved residents in exploring local views on the barriers and enablers to eating well in Podsmead. The aim of this work was to gather insights to inform community-led action to enable families to access and eat a healthy diet.
“We were really impressed with the robust and inclusive approach to this research and with the quality and accessibility of the final report.“
Sue Weaver, Lead Commissioner (Health Improvement) at Gloucestershire County Council
“When we decided to set up a User Advisory Group, we approached Evolving Communities because of their expertise in bringing independent scrutiny to health and social care services.
“They created a brilliant team of professional and committed volunteers who, as the User Advisory Group, help us to evaluate what we currently do and to plan for the future. Our services are currently rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission, and the User Advisory Group helps us to ensure that they remain safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led – the CQC’s five themes.”
Stephen Dale, Head of Community Partnerships at Dorothy House Hospice Care
