Our Evaluation Tools

How do we evaluate?

There are a number of different ways that we collect evidence about our projects to help us evaluate our impact on older people. Locally, the BAB Programme Management Team have an important role in monitoring overall programme activity.

The local evaluation of Bristol Ageing Better is conducted by the University of the West of England (UWE) and the BAB Community Researchers.

Ageing Better National Evaluation

Ecorys is the agency commissioned by the Big Lottery Fund to undertake a national-level evaluation of the Ageing Better: Fulfilling Lives programme across all 14 areas in England, including Bristol. The Common Measurement Framework (CMF), developed by Ecorys, is a survey designed to be completed by an older person taking part in any ongoing BAB-funded project. The survey contains questions on topics including health, social contact, wellbeing, social participation, decision making and volunteering. The survey is designed to be completed when an older person starts with a project, when they leave a project and again six months later. This will enable us to see if a project has had a positive effect on an older person throughout their journey with a BAB project.

Further details on the national evaluation are available here: Ecorys Fulfilling Lives Ageing Better Evaluation

Our Evaluation Tools

BAB has worked on the design of the Common Measurement Framework (CMF), based on feedback from participants and delivery partners, making them more accessible and encouraging for people to take part in this exciting piece of work. When older people complete the forms they are contributing their experiences and shaping the national agenda for tackling isolation and loneliness in the UK. 

Below you can find downloadable versions of the Registration (Blue) and Wellbeing (Red) forms, as well as information for participants regarding BAB's evaluation. Foreign language versions and printed copies of our large print forms can be provided by request.
