Iriss worked with East Lothian Council for nine months between October 2012 and July 2013 to help facilitate their Getting it Right For Every Child (GIRFEC) and Child Protection Quality Improvement Sub-group (hereafter known as 'the group'). This was a multi-agency group, consisting of representatives from Children's Wellbeing Social Work, Child Protection, Education, Health, the third sector (specifically Children 1st) and the Police.
Aims and ambitions
Over the next 10-15 years there are likely to be significant changes both in the numbers requiring access to support and the strategies for responding to this.
Report that is drawn from lessons learned during the facilitation of Evaluation Exchange.
Evaluation Exchange was a time-limited peer support network created by Iriss and Evaluation Support Scotland. It aimed to help organisations in the social services sector to learn from and support each other to undertake evaluations of the services and support they provide to individuals in Scotland.
Evaluation Exchange was set up by Iriss working in partnership with Evaluation Support Scotland (ESS). We brought together a group of practitioners from social services sector with a real self-evaluation project to undertake. We wanted the participants to assist each other to plan and/or undertake the evaluation and build their capacity to self-evaluate. We were also interested in learning about and sharing 'what works' in peer support for self-evaluation.
