Plan BEach intervention to be evaluated separately, according to its ownobjectives. This will help us to: • determine whether it has been successful. • uncover any learning applicable to the wider programme or Trust • establish whether this intervention / approach works • establish whether it merits being rolled out or replicatedNeeds consistency and flexibility • Considered against programme objectives & own individual objectives • 7 compulsory questions for all evaluation • Instructions on wording, who to ask and how • More general guidance on evaluation • Further support
