The independent evaluation report: Hearing the Voices of Canterbury’s Children, is the first significant step in an ongoing process to develop a more rigorous, evidence-based approach to defining and measuring the outcomes our service is achieving for children, families, and the community.

Evaluation 1200x600

The evaluation, prepared by Clarity Research, was designed to answer two questions that would help us to make informed strategic decisions about the organisation’s future:

What is Cholmondeley’s role in the Canterbury community and the Canterbury social services sector?

What impact does Cholmondeley have on the ability of families to keep their children safe, and prevent issues escalating, creating care and protection issues for the child?

In short, the evaluation affirmed what we had always believed: that Cholmondeley’s service was unique within the sector, and essential for building family resilience.
