Wavehill Director Andy Parkinson worked as part of the team commissioned by Nesta to provide evaluation support to local authorities participating in the Cities of Service Programme. From March 2014 to March 2016 Nesta backed seven UK cities to mobilise the talents and energy of volunteers to meet city wide challenges, using the successful United States Cities of Service model. The localities included: Barnsley, Bristol, Kirklees, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Swindon, and Telford and Wrekin.
The research team worked with partnerships across each locality to produce an evaluation framework and high-level KPIs that would help them to shape their service plans and facilitate subsequent impact assessment work.
