The project aims to build the long-term capacity of the third sector to contribute to the process of public service reform.
This is the latest release in the series: Independent evaluation of Wales Council for Voluntary Action's 'Making the Connections' project
'Making the Connections' officers, in most cases, added much needed extra capacity to County Voluntary Council's and found constructive ways of supporting local third sector organisations. As such, the Project’s output targets have mostly been met. The project as a whole, however, has not realised the outcomes which it hoped to achieve.
In large part this is as a result of the context in which the project has operated, but while external factors may account for many of the difficulties faced by the 'Making the Connections' project, internal factors may have played a part.
