Our Outcomes Are Proven

At Graeme Dingle Foundation we have a research team that’s dedicated to evaluating and measuring programme outcomes around Aotearoa. This work provides an important evidence base which helps define and refine our programmes, so we’re always up-to-date, responsive and relevant.

To make sure our evaluation design and practices remain credible (and to provide opportunities for external evaluation projects), we work alongside the Universities and with research partners. We are also open to proposals for independent research projects from Masters and PhD students or other research agencies.
