New STC IRL working team to develop a way forward in Monitoring & Evaluation. M&E is a tool used in community development, international development aid, social sciences, and other contexts to help objectively evaluate the outcomes and impacts of a social activity. For STC IRL, our volunteering activities serving marginalised and vulnerable persons are important, but so is understanding how these activities benefit participants and the community. This “way forward” working team consists of (Dr.) Ingrid, Gerry, Shem and Alan with a strong balance of academic and practice-led experience in developing an M&E framework. This piece of work is ongoing through early 2018 when it will provide recommendations to the Directors of STC IRL.
