Evaluating the impact of the Hamilton Davies Trust in Irlam and Cadishead

Hamilton Davies Trust asked New Economy to produce an evaluation of the impact the Trust and partners has had upon Irlam and Cadishead since its inception in 2004. New Economy agreed to undertake the evaluation pro bono in order to understand both the impact and the potential for the applicability of this new approach to be rolled out to other parts of Greater Manchester.

The research has combined consultations with stakeholders who have a detailed knowledge of Irlam and Cadishead with quantitative research into changes in the socioeconomic profile of the area compared to similar parts of Greater Manchester.
