Our Evaluation Stories webinars share the pioneering work of organisations using OutNav to learn, improve, evidence and tell the story of the difference they make.

About this webinar

This webinar focuses on the use of OutNav for the evaluation of peer support approaches in health and social care, where people with lived experience of mental health issues or addictions are trained and employed to support others in recovery.

  • The webinar was held live on 9 February 2022.

The webinar is hosted by Dr Simon Bradstreet, who is Senior Evaluation Consultant here at Matter of Focus and who brings a considerable background in developing and evidencing peer-based approaches.

Simon introduces our wider work in this area and looks at why using our outcome focused approach embedded in OutNav is so well suited to the evaluation of peer-based approaches. He then talks about the findings from our recently published evaluation of a peer support ‘test of change’ in East Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership.

In conversation with Matter of Focus Director Ailsa Cook, Tracy Butler, Lead Planner of Recovery Services at East Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership, talks about the experience of evaluating the peer support test of change and using OutNav to explore evidence.
