Evaluation of the Children's Fund, Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset (2003-2004)
Sponsor: Dorset Children's Fund Partnership
The aim of this evaluation was to facilitate the judgements of all key stakeholders about the worthwhileness and accomplishment of the Children's Fund programmes in Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset. The Children's Fund is a key part of the governments strategy to tackle disadvantages and inequalities which derive from child poverty and social exclusion. The evaluation took a case-based approach and was a collaboration between CRED and the School of Health and Social Care at UWE. Along with many other 'local' evaluation projects in the Children's Fund programme this one was terminated early, partly as a result of funding cuts.
