On 16th December, we held our first Evaluation Workshop with all our grantees. An opportunity to discuss our commitment to learning, our evaluation framework and for everyone to meet one another.
Spirit working with inFocus
Spirit working with inFocus Enterprises research consortium to evaluate impact of investments
Spirit and inFocus join in partnership for 3 years, to evaluate Spirit’s partnerships and projects to effectively monitor the impact of funding
In November 2013, the Big Lottery Fund established Spirit of 2012, to invest in projects across the UK that enable people to participate in sports, arts, volunteering, and social action. The aim of investment is to increase health and wellbeing, challenge perceptions of disability and to lead to greater social cohesion.
Spirit of Learning
When Spirit was set up, just a over a year ago, we were charged with the huge and daunting task of “leaving a legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games for communities across the UK” and, in doing so, become the custodians of a knowledge bank on the power of national and local events to be catalysts for social change.
It has been tremendously exciting to be at the helm as Spirit of 2012 was created and endowed by the Big Lottery Fund, and to work with Peter Ainsworth and his team to bring the new trust into being and to shape our purpose and ethos.
