For several years Voluntary Action Leeds has been developing the support it provides to organisations, both third sector and statutory, around research and evaluation. Recently we have been working with NHS England, Local Authorities and third sector organisation from across Yorkshire and beyond.

Currently VAL is co-ordinating a partnership of third sector, statutory and University partners from across Yorkshire and the Humber in undertaking research around the effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the third sector.

If you would like to know more about the support VAL can offer you around research and evaluation then please contact Gary Blake –
