“Whilst speaking to potential consultants Envoy Partnership stood out as the organisation that could bring the skills required for the task and also paid the greatest attention to our objectives. [The best bits of Envoy’s work were] flexibility and communication – Envoy Partnership adapted throughout the project for example in designing the project team to meet our budget, altering their approach during the data collection phase, and providing a variety of forms of feedback at the end of the project… This project may kick start a new robust but practical approach to evaluation across the organisation.”

David Hounsell, Business Performance and Impact Manager/ Economic Advisor, The Children’s Society

[The best bit of Envoy’s work were] their expertise and professionalism. I have been thoroughly impressed by the breadth of their knowledge and the way in which they have dealt with our customers and partners… By understanding the social return on our investment I am hopeful that the Council and our partners can see the difference that the prototype is making in terms of community wellbeing and community resilience, as well as financially to the public purse.”
