Evaluation

In 2016 the Shape Up programme commissioned the University of Hertfordshire to do a qualitative evaluation of Shape Up.

 

Researchers from the university attended sessions and spoke to participants about their experiences of the programme.

The report was published in 2016, and can be found opposite. Off the back of the research, many changes were implemented to address the suggestions outlined, and the programme has since been developed significantly.
