RFA CLIENT REPORTS

Here are some examples of our published research reports

CO3 (Chief Officers Third Sector) Path to Impact Programme Evaluation 
We evaluated this three-year programme funded by the Big Lottery Fund, developed in conjunction with CO3, ACOSVO (Association of Chief Officers of Scottish Voluntary Organisations) and Dr John Brothers. Path to Impact provides access to a diagnostic tool called the Core Capacity Tool (CCAT) for 100 community and voluntary sector organisations. We worked alongside CO3 to evaluate the impact of the programme and to author key reports around the capacity of the sector and the impact of the support provided. Our interim and final reports can be found here:
