Evaluation of advocacy service for people with neuro conditions

We are working with Advocacy Centre North in Newcastle over the next few years to evaluate their innovative advocacy service for people who have a range of different neurological conditions. We are conducting a participatory evaluation for them which is being driven by a service user evaluation group, created and facilitated by us. We have prepared a summary of the interim evaluation, which can be seen here.


"Barefoot did a fantatsic job of our evaluation. In particular, their approach to working with our service users was very impressive. The evaluation has answered many of our questions, but also asked us more, which gives us a great opportunity for the future."

Jayne Butler, Manager, The Comfrey Project

"As an organisation we felt that Barefoot did an excellent job of listening and understanding the needs of our review... We were thrilled with the final report; as well as being a very good read, the presentation and quality was excellent."

Cath Carnaby, Manager, Women's Health Advice Centre

"I am pleased with the honesty and thoroughness with which he (Christopher) dealt with the project. Thanks to the evaluation we now have a number of questions answered and a clear way forward."
