The T.E.D. Ageing Better in East Lindsey is taking a test and learn approach, which gives us the flexibility to deliver in a range of styles. Test and Learn means we can recognise and share ideas that have been successful and areas that the project has learnt from.

Ageing Better Projects are being evaluated locally and nationally with the national evaluation being led by Ecorys who were selected by The National Lottery Community Fund as an impartial organisation. Ecorys are analysing the interventions and the difference the programme makes for participants and examine the delivery models that are effective and the sustainability for wider programme delivery.

All participants involved in the T.E.D. Programme are requested to complete a survey called the CMF (Common Measurement Framework) which was designed by Ecorys. Participants complete a CMF at the start of their involvement with a project, after six months, at the end of the project and then a final time six months later.
