JESSIE May has commissioned an external evaluation company to undertake an outcomes and economic evaluation of the impact of Jessie May in providing children’s hospice care in the home.
The charity is aiming to grow its services in the coming years and as such it is important to measure the impact of their work to ensure that they continue to support Jessie May’s children and families.
Specialist research and evaluation company Apteligen have been chosen for this project.
Apteligen works with the public sector and charities, helping them to research and design new ways of working, measure outcomes, and tell compelling and robust impact stories.
John Newman is the Director at Apteligen, he said:
“Apteligen is delighted to be working with Jessie May to undertake an independent outcome and economic evaluation of their Children’s Hospice Care at Home service. As a specialist research and evaluation company, working with the public sector and charitable organisations across sectors, we are very much looking forward to working closely with the families that Jessie May supports, the team delivering the service, and others working to provide palliative and end of life care across the wider health and care system, so that we can build new insights and learning about Jessie May’s impact. We hope that this will help Jessie May to deliver the best possible support to many more families in the future.”
CEO of Jessie May, Daniel Cheesman is looking forward to working with Apteligen, he said:
“It was clear to us that from the bid they submitted to carry out this evaluation that they have an understanding of the importance that Jessie May has to the children and families that we support and are sensitive to the work that we do. We are keen to learn more about the impact that we have as a charity and how we might offer more to those we support.”
Apteligen will work with Jessie May for six months, starting in September 2023, with a final report due in spring 2024.
