This paper is authored by Simon Barlow, of UnLtd – Transform Ageing partners.

In this paper we explore how combining developmental and theory-based evaluation approaches can provide space for learning and accountability in innovative programmes. It draws on our experience in Transform Ageing and makes recommendations for anyone interested in what role learning can play when addressing complex challenges or in innovative programmes.

Launched in 2017, Transform Ageing aims to improve people’s experience of ageing. It is an innovative programme that brings together co-design and social entrepreneurship to create new, peoplecentred solutions that better support the needs and aspirations of people in later life.
