Rowan Associates - See the wood for the trees


Rowan Associates is passionate about good services, and about enabling organisations that are making a positive difference to show the difference they are making.

We don’t need to tell you that funding is increasingly constrained.  Providers face increasing pressure to show that their services are needed, valued and effective.  And funders need to know that their funding is well directed.

We specialise in evidencing impact and building qualitative evaluation data into a robust evidence base.

Our specialisms include

  • Measuring your impact
  • Defining your outcomes
  • Gathering information from your stakeholders
  • Carrying out external evaluations
  • Working with you to develop tools and processes for self-evaluation
  • Researching the need for your project, service or organisation

We have a track record in producing clear and accessible reports and publications with realistic recommendations that can be put into practice.

Self Evaluation

Rowan Associates is keen to enable organisations to build a culture of ongoing evaluation, without having to call in the external evaluators.

Lori developed a bespoke Impact Assessment Tool Kit.  This gives us methods for finding out what the many, different visitors and users of the Community Centre think about our facilities.  It also shows the importance of a community building to the lives of the people who use its facilities.   The questionnaire has a clear framework at its heart and this is giving us a valuable body of evidence.  People have even praised the questionnaire!”
