Research and Evaluation


This group is chaired by Craig Tomlinson, BBC Children in Need, and examines questions like:

  1. How can we learn from our work, both in terms of grants that we make and activities that we carry out directly?
  2. Do we commission research well?
  3. How do we use the knowledge generated by our grant recipients?
  4. How can we use knowledge to influence?

A broad range of London Funders' network members take part, some with research and evaluation jobs while others are not specialists but have it as part of their role and are keen to use research and evaluation well and learn from the work they fund.  If you are not on the mailing list for this group please email Becky

Next meeting
