Evaluation Services

We understand how important it is to make the most of evaluation opportunities, using these not just to meet funder requirements but as a catalyst to increase impact, for example by driving learning and performance improvement, culture and systems change, service user involvement, strategy, partnership and new business development.

Imara“We experienced good partnership working with Eastside Primetimers and their consultant Nicky Stevenson, who has supported us over the past year with our evaluation and monitoring. With her help producing great reports, analysis and ideas, we are now able to show our value more effectively” Cath Wakeman, Chief Executive Officer and Trauma Therapist
Rainbow Services Harlow“Eastside Primetimers and their consultant Teresa Bailey were great to work with. The healthcheck they provided gave us a snapshot of where we were and a reflective look at what improvements we could make to achieve greater effectiveness and organisational efficiencies” Jackie Sully, Executive Director
Big Red Food Shed Ltd“One of the best decisions we made was to commission an evaluation of our work. We hoped this would confirm our obvious successes and highlight areas needing improvement. We worked with Rosie Chadwick from Eastside Primetimers and the report which resulted has been an invaluable tool for us to use. We are able to use verified figures of achievement and production, hear third party opinions from our partnerships and real-time comment from our Volunteers. All of this really helps a small organisation like ours to progress with confidence.” Julie Lowe, Managing Director
North Norfolk Community Transport“Working with Eastside Primetimers was instrumental to NNCT having a strong period of growth. The diagnostic their team performed helped us reflect on our needs and identify areas where we needed support, including governance  and sustainability. We have doubled in size, with more income from sustainable, longer-term contracts rather than grants. Their variety of consultants with different backgrounds, skills and ideas gave us access to their experience and to personal support on a peer basis” Matt Townsend, Former chief executive
Restore“Rosie Chadwick was challenging, insightful and inspiring. She helped us clarify the areas for improvement and celebrate the achievements. Her work discovered some of the more positive and unexpected benefits. Rosie was supportive and very clear in her feedback and working with her was a real pleasure” Mick Carroll, Head of Coaching
