Supporting Sport to Build Back Better – How will we know if our programmes and interventions are making an impact?

Supporting Sport to Build Back Better is a complex programme made up of a number of interventions and grant programmes. To support us in determining the impact of the programme, Sport Northern Ireland have appointed Otium Leisure Consulting to produce a single underpinning and overarching Monitoring and Evaluation Framework.

The Supporting Sport to Build Back Better Monitoring and Evaluation Framework is outcomes based. This means the focus is on how the various interventions contribute to our programme outcomes.

The information collected through the framework fits into one of the following:

  • How much did we do?
  • How well did we do it? And
  • Is anybody better off?

We have also asked Otium Leisure Consulting to provide individuals and organisations engaged in delivering the programme with support to help show the impact of each project.  Find out more about this:

During the Programme there will be ten shared learning events which will support you with monitoring and evaluation. To maximise the opportunity to participate, these sessions will be delivered on line.
