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.
