At PWB we are constantly evaluating our work so that we can improve the quality and effectiveness of our outreach programmes. For anyone that has seen or volunteered on a PWB project the benefits are obvious, but there are also more scientific ways of measuring this qualitative judgment.
To date we have conducted two official Tour Evaluations and one Alumni Survey. One PWB-UK project evaluation and a Community Feedback Survey. These are listed below.
The general conclusion is that the young people we interact with benefit enormously from out outreach programmes and we consistently achieve our stated aims of: contributing to creating a more positive outlook and improving quality of life.
Volunteering on a PWB tour can also be a significantly positive experience for our volunteers and life changing in a good way. See below for more.
We have recently completed an evaluation report of a Network for Social Change funded project to teach circus skills at Swiss Cottage Special Needs School in North London. Please also see our web page devoted to the project here – Swiss Cottage.Swiss Cottage Report
We also conducted a Blackburn Community Feedback Survey to support an Awards for All grant application. It was designed to consult the community on the need for circus skills workshops in the area: specifically focusing on children-in-care.Blackburn Community Feedback
