Evaluation & Advisory
AHA is skilled in assessing the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of programs and initiatives, collecting and analysing data to inform decision-making, and providing practical, evidence-based findings and recommendations.
AHA’s Evaluation and Advisory Workstreams produce reports that are clear, concise and meticulously researched. Our independent status allows us to deliver a rigorous analysis of the evidence and draw robust conclusions. We don’t just acquire data, we interpret it.
We apply these skills in projects across settings ranging from small community-based organisations to state-specific initiatives and large national programs.
We’ve consulted with a diverse range of stakeholders, including people from vulnerable consumer groups such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, people from and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities and people from rural and remote communities.
Many of our evaluations involve sensitive topics and working with potentially vulnerable people – for example our work in disability, mental health, organ donation and the psychosocial response to bushfires. We’re skilled in the use of culturally appropriate approaches and committed to dealing sensitively and ethically with vulnerable individuals.
Our approach is informed by current evaluation theory and best practice, and is designed to suit the requirements of each project. We favour a mixed-methods approach to allow triangulation of information from quantitative and qualitative sources, while seeking to minimise the impost on stakeholders.
AHA produces concise, insightful and comprehensive reports. We continuously refine the ways we present data and findings in order to convey information most meaningfully. Reports are designed to suit each project and comply with latest accessibility guidelines including WCAG 2.0.
