Evaluation and learning

Findings from our evaluations and guidance for anyone involved in evaluating projects as part of Uniting the Movement.

We work with partners to evaluate our programmes, campaigns and investments so we can track success and use what we learn to help more people enjoy the benefits of being active.

Our approach and action plan sets the direction for how evaluation and learning can support our Uniting the Movement strategy.

It reflects the collective response from staff and partners, about how evaluation and learning can help us tackle inequalities and bring the benefits of sport and physical activity to everyone.

The approach sets out three simple, shared ambitions to improve how we embed, conduct and use evaluation and learning.

Alongside these ambitions are the ways of working that we, and our partners, think will help us achieve those ambitions.

The action plan reveals the actions we think will help us achieve these ambitions and highlights how you can get involved, to create evaluation that is more inclusive, flexible, open and valuable for the sector.

You can read an update on our progress in this blog from Darcy Hare.

As part of the action plan, we’re working on a range of materials to support this new approach, including practical guidance for anyone involved in evaluating projects as part of Uniting the Movement - we’ll share them here as soon as they’re ready.

In the meantime, you can still access the most popular resources and guidance from our previous evaluation framework or you can email us at
