How can evidence drive social innovation?

Thursday 26th of November 2015
WCVA annual conference, Venue Cymru, Llandudno 2:15pm - 3:15pm

Are you interested in innovation in the third sector in Wales or in how the sector is using evidence? If so, come and join us for this roundtable discussion at Wales Council for Voluntary Action's annual conference.


Evidence is key to effective social innovation. Drawing on existing evidence is a first step to creating new approaches that are most likely to be effective. When new approaches are put into practice, robust evidence is essential to understand whether or not these are working, or even doing harm.


The roundtable will explore what is good (enough) evidence for third sector organisations? To what extent are organisations already using evidence in Wales to increase impact and make best use of resources? Why isn’t using and creating evidence more widespread and what could be done to support the sector to do this better?
