Great Place scheme year one evaluation report

The Great Place scheme is a joint initiative between Arts Council England and Heritage Lottery Fund that aims to pilot new approaches to putting culture at the heart of communities and local policy-making. This programme evaluation has been commissioned from BOP Consulting to explore three key questions:

1. How best to re-position culture in local decision-making, planning and delivery?

2. Do new approaches lead to improved social, economic and cultural outcomes for local partners?

3. How do HLF and Arts Council England work together to support these new approaches in future?

The programme evaluation is working closely with the awarded projects to gather both qualitative and quantitative evidence of how the programme is functioning, what it is delivering, and what learning can be taken from it both for current and future editions of such place-based schemes.
