The Life Changes Trust recognises that for evaluation to be useful, it is important to understand what works well and the things that need to change or improve.  This involves adopting a positive approach to learning and improvement.  It should involve others, including beneficiaries, in evaluation activity. 

This section examines a range of considerations when designing your evaluation.
