What we do

FPE supports for-purpose organisations to create and implement outcomes measurement frameworks. We also complete program evaluations and provide interactive workshops for staff on the topics of social impact, outcomes measurement, theory of change and logic models. We balance a robust academic approach with a pragmatic understanding of what it is really like to provide high quality supportive programs to vulnerable people with complex needs. 

Using a natural data gathering approach we develop a framework that gathers the data you need to tell your story.

Our Values

Excellence | Enthusiasm | Integrity | Pragmatism

Our Vision

A human services sector that knows its impact.

Our Purpose

We provide organisations the tools and capacity to measure their impact, because every person deserves a service that works.

“We are extremely happy with the work that For-Purpose Evaluations has done building a Social Impact Measurement Framework for our organisation. Eleanor has gone above and beyond our expectations, and her work has had a very positive impact for our organisation (and continues to do so). I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

Why we do what we do

Because every person deserves a service that works. 

Pressure has increased in the human services sector to provide evidence of not only outputs and activities but outcomes and impacts as well.

For-Purpose Evaluations prides itself on working with unique organisations that serve our communities most vulnerable people in complex environments. We will support you to develop an outcomes measurement framework that aligns with and utilises your existing service delivery processes. We believe the evidence you need to be confident of your impact already exists–it is just a matter of capturing and communicating that impact.

“Working with For-Purpose-Evaluations was an outstanding experience and delivered to our service a significantly improved data management and program reporting process. Their knowledge and expertise across the disability / justice service space is second to none.”

"Eleanor and the team were able to quickly understand our challenges and advise on improving how we measured and communicated our positive impact on people with a disability, their families, and their communities. The result has transformed our reporting process and placed us in a strong position to justify the ongoing investment in our service. I look forward to more opportunities to work with FPE again and happily recommend them to others."

“Not only did FPE deliver on their brief, they really took the time to understand the ethos and values of the organisation and the program. And they were able to reflect these in the end product.” 

"Flat Out engaged For-Purpose Evaluations to design and compile an outcomes and social impact framework for our new Women Inside and Out program – the first of its kind in Victoria. The result is a well-rounded, well-researched, and beautiful framework that Flat Out is so proud of. Thanks so much for your exceptional work."

“Working with For-Purpose Evaluations on an Outcomes Measurement Framework was a smooth and enjoyable project. They are passionate about the work they do and there was not a question that they couldn’t answer.”

"It was evident that Eleanor and the team put in the hard work to understand our organisation and it was therefore very easy to communicate what we required. They were flexible, yet firm with what they knew would be the best outcome for us. The value of a Framework of this kind can never be underestimated and I wouldn't hesitate to work with Eleanor and the FPE team again."
