Evaluation of VOICE and ENGAGE

CMI reviews and evaluate the achievements of infrastructure organisations in the East Midlands.

CM International was contracted by emda to review and evaluate the achievements of Voice, and Engage, two regional infrastructure organisations established with funding from emda and Government Office East Midlands and intended to strengthen and co-ordinate the activities of the Voluntary and Community sector in the East Midlands. The evaluation examined the performance of these two organisations in terms of their influence as generic (Engage) and specialist (Voice) sector support agencies, their quantifiable achievements against their regional Delivery Plans for the period 2005 to 2007, and the economic return on the investment for GOEM and emda.
