Links to further resources and information that you might find useful.

Achieving Community Empowerment (ACE): Reviewing section

The ACE process is intended to help community groups and organisations become more confident, better organised, and more effective in achieving their aims. Section 4 of the ACE guide is about reflecting on what you have done as a group, reviewing progress you have made to achieve the identified outcomes, and identifying what needs to be done next.



LEAP stands for Learning, Evaluation and Planning, and takes you through a four-stage cycle of planning what you want to achieve, recording what you do and reviewing what you have done.




VOiCE is an online tool that can assist you to design, deliver and monitor effective community engagement.


Evaluation Support Scotland (ESS)

ESS works with voluntary organisations and funders so that they can measure and report on their impact. It offers a range of support guides on matters relating to planing and evaluation, including setting outcomes and developing logic models that show the links between your activities and their wider impact.


Communities Channel Scotland

The Communities Channel  website contains a list of accessible resources for evaluation which should be useful in helping you to review your progress.
