Mental health evaluations

We have been working with VODA in North TimeTyneside carried out evaluations of their mental health alliance, the young persons mental health service called Discover Me and the adult mental health service called NT Life located in Meadow Well. From the strategic to the Community mental health service, VODA were found to be effective and impactful at all levels.


"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."
