Bristol Golden Key Initiative

Bristol Golden Key Initiative

UWE’s Bristol Leadership Centre teamed with the University of Bristol and successfully secured £375,000 Big Lottery funding to evaluate the Bristol Golden Key initiative.

The Project

Anita Gulati and her team have been successful in their bid for the evaluation of the Bristol Golden Key initiative which aims to find new and sustainable ways of working with people with multiple and complex needs, including homelessness, offending, drug and alcohol dependency and mental health issues. It is an 8-year project, commissioned by Second Step (a Bristol based charity) as part of a national initiative with Big Lottery funding. The project is worth £375,000. The aims of the evaluation include identifying programme outcomes; exploring mechanisms for change; investigating local economic impact; and eliciting and sharing learning to inform future service design, commissioning and policy making

The Team

The bid was led by Anita Gulati, Richard Bolden and Margaret Page of the Bristol Leadership Centre, in collaboration with Antony Plumridge in Economics, Chris Pawson, Richard Kimberlee, Billie Oliver, Bob Pitt, and Liz Frost from HASS, Robin Hambleton in FET, and Elliot Stern (University of Bristol).
