Publications

Research and Evaluation is a key part of all Northside Partnership Programmes. We closely monitor and document how our programmes perform and how they benefit our target communities.

We want to understand:

  • What is working well and making a real difference to our communities?
  • What are the factors that make a programme successful?
  • What can we improve in how we deliver our programmes?
  • What are the emerging issues in our communities that we need to deal with?

Please see below a range of publications and reports on our programmes. If you cannot find the information you need, please contact us.
