Outcome Assessment
Please list up to 4 outcomes that you expect to result from this grant:

ADWC defines 'outcome' as the direct changes that your project can make over time to address the need(s) you have identified. They are the result of what you do, rather than the activities or services you provide. In answer to this question, we simply ask that you list what you expect to come out of this grant in order to judge it a success. We will ask you to report against these measures at the end of your grant.

Your list may include both qualitative and quantitative outcomes however outcomes are best described using words of change, such as: 'more', 'better', 'less' or 'improved'. In some cases outcomes may involve keeping a situation stable, or stopping things from getting worse.


The expected outcomes are not to be confused with the project aims.  The aim sums up the purpose of your project rather than the impact it has.


Example outcomes might include:

- 5 young people access meaningful employment as a result of positive activity

- increase the efficiency of our service by bringing down cost per beneficiary

- fathers improve their parenting skills resulting in stronger family relationships

- provide training to staff/ volunteers to improve skills and capacity to meet needs

- an increase in local community groups will decrease social isolation for elderly people
