Live research and evaluation projects

Drink Wise Age Well - an evaluation of the Big Lottery-funded Drink Wise Age Well programme for older people, carried out over five years by a UK-wide academic partnership comprising Substance Misuse and Aging Research Team at the University of Bedfordshire, Napier University, Glyndwr University and Queen’s University. 

Blackpool Fulfilling Lives - a national evaluation programme has been established in order to assess the impact and results from Fulfilling Lives projects across England. The evaluation team will be gathering evidence, data and learning from the projects throughout the initiative. This will be used to measure the social and economic impact of the investment in tackling the most entrenched and complex needs through services that are better coordinated and person-centred. The Fulfilling Lives evaluation website will be used as a platform for disseminating learning, findings and evidence throughout the initiative.
