Research & Evaluation

At Graeme Dingle Foundation we have a whole research team that's dedicated to evaluating and developing programme logic models, and measuring outcomes. This work provides an important evidence base which helps define and refine our programmes, so we're always up to date, responsive and relevant.

To make sure our evaluation design and practices remain credible (and to provide opportunities for external evaluation projects), we work alongside the University of Auckland and Massey University. We are also open to proposals for independent research projects from Masters and PhD students or other research agencies.
