EVALUATION AND SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT OF THE BUSINESS GROWTH PROGRAMME - ERDF PA3

 

Year: 2016/2022 

We are currently engaged by the New Anglia Growth Programme - a project delivering the Growth Hub, with Start-up initiatives from local organisations Menta and NWES, and a Small Grant Scheme. We are currently halfway through a six-year project and currently in the process of undertaking final Summative Assessment activity. 

 

Our work in the first two years of delivery led to a number of delivery improvements:

 

  • Identifying and solving challenging beneficiary acquisition issues

  • A complete overhaul of a complex grant appraisal mechanism that was crippling the delivery of outputs and hampering the process of securing the private sector match funding needed for project viability

  • A radical simplification of the grant application process and related documentation

  • A redesign of the appraisal process

 

Within a few months this helped the team to:

 

  • Deliver increases in Enterprises Supported - up from 18 to 70 in weeks

  • Increase Grant approvals from £73.6k to £500k;

  • Increase in Private Match secured - up from £380k to £2m. 

  • Supporting the analysis and redesign of the Start-Up elements of the project in preparation for the next funding round

  • Summative Assessment of the Business Growth Programme 

  • Client: Wiltshire Council
