Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership (EHSCP) has taken a pioneering, outcomes focused, long term and collaborative approach to developing an evaluation framework to collect data on the impact of commissioned supports for unpaid carers.

We are delighted to be working with the EHSCP and the commissioned partners to support them to track and evidence the difference this work makes. Over the past 18 months we have been working with the EHSCP and commissioned partners to:

  • Co-produce an outcome framework that shows how the work of commissioned partners will contribute to the EHSCP strategic outcomes for carers.
  • Agree an evaluation and reporting approach that balances the need of the HSCP to report consistently with the diversity of data and reporting practices within the partner organisations.
  • Track how the work of the partner organisations is contributing to outcomes and understand the factors that are helping and getting in the way.
  • Pull this information together to capture learning and assess progress along with quantitative data across all the unpaid carer commissioned supports.

  • Sheena Lowrie, Senior Development Manager, Edinburgh HSCP
  • Kyle Oram, Strategic Planning and Commissioning Officer, Edinburgh HSCP
