Don’t worry if you feel lost or change direction, you’re amongst friends at UCL and we can help you stay on track. UCL’s Public Engagement Unit is learning as it goes itself. We take time to stop, reflect and adjust our course when we need to. We can help you do the same. We have expertise in evaluation and how to embed it in your work. We also offer resources, toolkits, and guidance.

We believe that evaluation is crucial for effective public engagement. We expect all projects we deliver and fund to have evaluation built into them (ideally from the start).

One to One Support

Our Evaluation Officer can provide evaluation support and advice to those doing public engagement. We can work with you at any stage of the evaluation process. This can include:

  • Developing evaluation strategy/plans
  • Designing evaluation methods
  • The delivery and monitoring of your work
  • Analysis of information
  • Writing up and sharing the learning from their work

We can also connect you to people who have run similar projects - who can share their experiences.

Please get in touch.


Evaluation is a core part our approach to public engagement and we include it in all our training courses. Visit our training page find a workshop to suit you.
