About the Evaluation


The National Lottery Community Fund has committed investment of £215 million in the ‘Fulfilling Lives: A Better Start’ programme.

To evaluate this programme, the National Lottery Community Fund has appointed the Warwick Consortium. Our robust evaluation will assess the impact and cost effectiveness of the programme within and across A Better Start sites in England. The aim of the research is to evaluate the impact and cost effectiveness of A Better Start and to understand the difference it has made to service systems. 

We are using a mixed methods design including impact, cost effectiveness and process components.
