Evaluating interventions related to violence against women

A guide and key steps to evaluating interventions related to violence against women, aimed to improve services, secure funding and acknowledge the quality of practitioners’ work and that of their clients.

A guide to evaluating interventions related to violence against women

Evaluation is a standard requirement for most community- based services, programs and projects. Ideally, they are done by evaluators, but often they are done by those delivering the services, who may have little evaluation knowledge and skills.

This guide, Evaluating interventions related to violence against women, can be seen as a companion to other evaluation guides. It is a resource for community and health workers, clinicians, as well as educators, activists, policy-makers, academics and others. It is designed to help them evaluate interventions related to violence against women (VAW), so they can use the findings to improve services, secure funding and acknowledge the quality of work delivered by practitioners.

This guide also provides information to assist non-professional evaluators with commissioning or assessing evaluation processes and outputs. It explains the importance of understanding the context of evaluation, and determining an organisation’s level of “evaluation-readiness”.

Finally, it seeks to help evaluators with no VAW-specific experience to consider key issues and challenges in evaluating interventions that address issues of domestic and family violence (DFV) and/or sexual assault (SXA). It provides some ideas to help evaluators plan and design evaluations that are ethically robust, culturally sensitive and gender-responsive.

Key steps in evaluating interventions related to violence against women

This is a quick reference resource for community and health workers, clinicians, educators, activists, policy-makers, academics and others. It is designed to help them evaluate interventions related to violence against women (VAW) so that they can use the findings to improve services, secure funding, and acknowledge the quality of work delivered by practitioners.

This publication provides a summary of the eight key steps over three stages presented in A guide to evaluating interventions related to violence against women (McEwen, 2018).
