Why evidence matters

We have become increasingly aware of a number of services that have been 'decommissioned'. Whilst some of this is due to financial restraints placed on commissioners, this is not always the case.

We know of a number of providers who have lost contracts due to being unable to provide the evidence required by the commissioner. This has come as a real blow to the providers and could have been averted.

Whilst data and recording might not seem the most essential part of delivering your services, when it comes to money CCG's, Local Authorities and funders all need to see that you are making a real and lasting difference to the lives of your beneficiaries. It is essential that you are able to report back to them on the impact you have had and the outcomes secured for the people they are giving funding to support.

We have a huge plea to everyone. Please don't see data as irrelevant. It is one of the most crucial aspects of your ongoing sustainability.
