What are they for?
In place of traditional end of project ‘debrief’ meetings we increasingly offer organisations Routes to Action workshops. We design and facilitate these with the aim of helping identify and plan how to apply the evidence and insights we’ve generated into practical action.
Which projects can they be applied to?
Evaluation, research, engagement, organisational development.
Example projects at Traverse
We recently ran Routes to Action workshops as part of a research project for the Centre for Ageing Better. The research identified patterns, barriers and enablers to informal volunteering among older people in five ‘hyper local’ sites across England. The Routes to Action workshops brought together local stakeholders to identify and agree on ways to apply insights. Ideas generated at the workshops contributed, among other things, to: the funding of two new community based roles, a local philanthropist funding a new project and evidence from the research being used by local community groups in successful funding applications.
