We are highly experienced in evaluation, impact reports and summative assessments. We conduct secondary research for our clients and ourselves, mainly on economic development and future drivers of change.

CLIENT / Cornwall Council
Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly have received substantial funding from the European Union over 20 years. We examined benefits to the county, including how well the economy has performed compared with other areas and what impact can be attributed to the EU funding. We also drew out a number of lessons for future programmes.
Ash Futures have written strategies and produced evaluations for us over several years, and have always delivered on their promises. They are a pleasure to work with.
