Alzheimer’s Society are the UK’s leading dementia support and research charity for anyone affected by any form of dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. NPC has worked with Alzheimer’s Society several times—on this occasion we helped create an impact framework, resulting in several theories of change, including one for the whole organisation.
We began by supporting the Society with reviewing the evidence needs for the organisation’s three strategic areas. The aim of the project was to get the key stakeholders to think through organisational processes and create new evaluation plans.
Throughout the project Alzheimer’s Society were able to make changes based on the support from NPC as critical friend. Whilst it is too early to measure tangible outcomes, the result of this work meant new tools have been introduced in the organisation.
NPC provided the sounding board we needed. Their constructive questioning and useful suggestions gave us added confidence to push forward with this work.
