Example projects


Alun Hughes, the Managing Director of 20 Degrees, outlines some examples of the types of evaluation projects we have undertaken over the last eight years.

Citizen-Directed Co-operatives Cymru (CDCC)

This National Lottery Community Fund project was led by Disability Wales and supported by the Wales Co-operative Centre. We undertook mid-term and final evaluations of this innovative project which sought to raise the profile of Direct Payments in Wales and establish a disabled-people led co‑operative for the benefit of disabled people.

Sustainable Play

Sustainable Play was led by Groundwork Wales in collaboration with Groundwork North Wales and SNAP Cymru. It was supported by Welsh Government to ‘increase and enhance the accessibility and quality of children’s outdoor play experiences across areas of Wales suffering from high levels of deprivation’. 20 Degrees was commissioned to undertake an independent evaluation of the programme at the interim and final stages.

Swindon & Wiltshire LEP

The Swindon & Wiltshire LEP secured a City Deal to support an ambitious 5-year programme. This will lead to up-skilling of 18,000 local people at levels 4 to 7 to address a sizeable and growing skills gap in the local economy. 20 Degrees worked with the LEP to create a group of pathfinder higher education providers able to deliver high level work based learning in the area.

BBNPA Rural Alliances

'Rural Alliances' was established to address negative impacts brought about by demographic change across North West Europe. Objectives include improving prospects for people and businesses, generating active and interesting communities and ensuring rural areas are fun and enjoyable for visitors.

20 Degrees delivered a series of workshops to address topics such as stakeholder engagement, visioning, developing business plans, funding and managing issues and challenges to ensure 'rural vibrancy'.
