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.
NEW MONITORING AND EVALUATION CONTRACT AWARDED TO BEHAVIOURAL INSIGHTS TEAM
Following a competitive tendering process, Spirit of 2012 is delighted to announce the award of a monitoring and evaluation contract to the Behavioural Insights Team.
The contract will enable Spirit grantees to work with BIT to improve their monitoring and evaluation.
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.
We launch our first legacy report at central London Summit
This week, Spirit of 2012 released the findings of new research into the impact of our first three years of funding. The research conclusively links our investment in funding event legacies with increased wellbeing.
Spirit’s evaluation engaged with 28 of the projects we have supported since 2013, asking participants and volunteers the same wellbeing questions asked by the ONS.
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.
