Identifying the facilitators and barriers to implementing the routine use of outcome measures in third sector wellbeing organisations

Alexis Foster is exploring how to improve the evidence base of health and wellbeing activities run by charities and other not for profit organisations. This is because whilst people attending community activities report they find them useful, we know little about whether their health and wellbeing actually improves. The specific focus of the fellowship is looking at the facilitators and barriers to using outcome measures routinely in third sector organisations. Throughout the fellowship, a community based participatory approach will be taken, where the research will be conducted collaboratively with stakeholders.
