Evaluation

Our evaluation services can help you measure financial well-being and demonstrate the impact you have on people’s financial health and well-being. 

Our Money Access and Participation Tool (MAPT) is the first of its kind in the sector.  It is a web-based evaluation tool that helps organisations to assess need and track the impact of financial advice and well-being services and support.

The tool assesses financial wellbeing in a holistic way and captures accurate, valid data to track an individual’s changing status over time at any point during the support process.

The tool captures:

  • an individual’s use of financial products and services
  • income and expenditure
  • debt
  • capability
  • attitudes
  • resilience and broader wellbeing
  • demographic data

Benefits of using the MAP tool

Using the MAP Tool allows organisations to collect and store data so they can better understand the needs of their service users; deliver more effective services and gather evidence to learn what works and show strong outcomes to funders.

MAP Tool data allows an organisation to understand their client body as a whole; compare service outcomes across projects using a standard evaluation framework and to see their services in a national context.

The MAP Tool has been co-designed with detailed input from over 300 sector experts and practitioners, including frontline and management staff from advice agencies, housing associations, credit unions and local authorities.

Whether you are a charity, a social enterprise or another agency, the MAP Tool can help you assess the financial health of the people you support and show the impact your work has on their lives.

The Tool has been developed by Toynbee Hall and is being funded by the Citi Foundation.
