Insight and Evaluation Manager, Q
The Health Foundation
My primary role is supporting the Q team to continually improve their work through evaluation. This includes both managing the external evaluation of the Q community (led by RAND Europe) and developing meaningful internal evaluation with the delivery team. In addition, I have responsibility to harness the wider collective insights of the Q community to improve health and care.
Matt has over a decade of evaluation and research experience across the voluntary sector including hospices, care homes and volunteer programmes within hospitals. He was previously Head of Research & Learning and Deputy Chief Executive at the Centre for Youth Impact, which led improvement across the youth sector. Before that he was a member of the research team at the National Council for Voluntary Organisations alongside which he also gained his PhD in Public Policy from Northumbria University.
Generally, I think that although evaluation in public policy has come a long way there continues to be too much of a desire to prove at the expense of a desire to improve. Clearly, high quality data collection and analysis is a pre-requisite for good evaluation but I also believe that the future lies in work that is proportionate, embedded, actionable and collective. I’m keen to work with others in the Evaluation SIG to directly inform the evaluation of Q both now and in to its future.
Over 400 Q members took part in the first Q Insight Survey earlier this year. Here, Q's Insight and Evaluation Manager, Matthew Hill shares some of the initial findings.
