Attributing change

The extent to which we can say that a change in outcomes was caused by your provision (or a part of it) is very challenging in social programmes.

It is more feasible and, perhaps, preferable to think about correlation (that there is a mutual relationship or connection between your provision and changes in outcomes) or contribution (that your provision contributes alongside other factors to changes in outcomes).

The resource hub can help to find the necessary guidance to explore the relationship between your provision and its outcomes.
