Evaluation and monitoring

Are you trying to better support families more effectively and efficiently?

Our evaluation team can help you to explore and understand what is working and how to build on this to improve outcomes for families – whether this be an intervention, a pathway or whole system.

We design and implement flexible, mixed-method evaluation approaches that blend qualitative and quantitative methods to determine whether a program works, how it works, why it works, and where it can work best. Our partnership approach means we work with you to deliver appropriate, bespoke approaches for all types of evaluation, including quantifying outcomes, impact and cost effectiveness.

We are highly skilled in undertaking primary research with families, exploring case files, reviewing practice and interviewing family members. Our practical experience means we can spot gaps in practice that others may not, and have a clear sense of what is achievable for families.

Most of our evaluations include focus groups and evaluation workshops with multi-agency frontline practitioners, senior managers and leaders. Our understanding of the enablers and challenges in multi-agency systems enables us to make realistic recommendations for systems change and ultimately improve outcomes for families.

We can also help you evaluate your programme using: 

  • logic modelling and process maps
  • supporting you to develop evaluation frameworks
  • on-going self-evaluation processes and support

 At the heart of our evaluation work is improving the lives of families. Our experience enables us to confidently advise you on the most effective and efficient evaluation method to get the insight you need.

Social and fiscal return on investment models

We provide a social return on investment (SROI) and a fiscal return on investment (FROI) model to support your evaluation. With considerable experience of developing business cases, we can help you demonstrate outcomes and value for money.

It was possible to access the wider team of consultants within Interface which added considerable value to their offer as on occasion additional skills and advice were required.

Children & Families Commissioning Team (Project Manager)

Interface carried out an evaluation of our Early Help services. We were particularly impressed with the range of skills and experience across the team and the way they liaised with family members and professionals. Also, the regular communication and management of the process.

The team were very flexible and the report was well written in plain English.
We were very pleased with the evaluation and the reports will inform our service development and practice.
