Overview of the programme
 City Bridge Trust logo

Funded by the City Bridge Trust, this programme aimed to build the capacity of mentoring and befriending projects across London to evidence their outcomes. The programme helped more than 50 organisations to develop competent monitoring and evaluation activities during its first year, and supported up to 60 more between 2013 and 2014.

With increasing competition in the third sector for funding and other resources, monitoring and evaluation is a vital tool for organisations both large and small.  This programme was developed in response to an MBF funding survey, in which a growing number (47%) of projects stated that they wanted support with evidencing soft outcomes and a further 82% stated that they have limited internal capacity, lack of resources, experience and confidence in developing frameworks, tools and approach for meaningful and effective evaluation.

MBF offered a training and support package to help develop projects’ monitoring and evaluation processes. This was not simply a training exercise, by the end of the programme they came away with a quality outcomes report which included data gathered and evaluated by participating projects. Tailored specifically for mentoring and befriending organisations, this project was provided for free for all successful applicants.
