Third sector’s contribution to tackling health inequalities – ESS currently seeking applications for learning set

Following our successful collaboration with Evaluation Support Scotland (ESS) in delivering workshops on Understanding Inequalities and Evaluating Impact on Inequalities this year, we’re pleased to share information about a series of Learning Sets being facilitated by ESS between June and November. 

The National Learning Collaborative for Inequalities has asked Evaluation Support Scotland (ESS) to develop a theory of change to demonstrate the third sector’s contribution to tackling health inequalities.

ESS is seeking third sector and statutory sector representatives (with a role in commissioning/funding third sector partners) to take part in a learning set to develop a theory of change about the role of the third sector. The theory of change will capture, at a high level, the broad range of activities the third sector currently deliver to tackle health inequalities and the different roles the third sector plays in preventing inequalities. 

This will help:

  • third sector organisations to explain to funders and partners how their work contributes to impacting on inequalities 
  • funders and commissioners better understand the third sector’s contribution

ESS is looking for a range of representatives from different parts of the third sector. If you’d like to apply to take part in this learning set, please complete the short application form. THIS SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED!

This work will feed directly into the public health reform agenda and contribute to improving clarity around the third sector’s role in achieving a step change in public health outcomes and tackling inequality.

CHEX will continue to be involved in this work and we look forward to developing further resources to support the work of tackling Scotland’s inequalities in health.
