“In the past I had always approached evaluation as something that was onerous and done to you. Working closely with Gill on an evaluation over a 2-year period, I really came to value evaluation as something that is done with you; it shapes and changes your project on an ongoing basis; and it has great benefits – and not just for your project or potential future funding. Gill’s approach is excellent for staff development and encouraging reflective, dynamic practice.”
Phil East, Deputy Chief Executive, Salford Foundation

“Gillian has a unique set of skills that enable her to operate effectively at the interface between health and healthcare improvement, research, evaluation, policy and engagement. She embodies evidence-based change into practice.”
Dr. Helen Bevan, OBE, Director of Service Transformation, NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement

“We have contracted Gillian Granville Associates to externally evaluate the development of our new social enterprise over the past 2 years. They have skillfully assisted us to reflect on our journey using a Theory of Change model. This has enabled us to continually reflect on practice development, monitor social impact and our growth and development as a new enterprise.” Celia Suppiah, Director, Parents 1st

“Gillian provided us with a really useful evaluation, which helped secure continuing funding for our Domestic Abuse project. She worked with us from the beginning to ensure we collected the right data and used a range of evaluation tools. I have no hesitation in recommending her to colleagues”
Val Armstrong, Public Health Manchester

“Gillian is passionate about the role of reflection and learning within programmes.  She has constantly challenged us to look beyond the numbers and ticking boxes to really understand the difference we’re making”
Natalie Turner, Programme manager, Age UK London
