Social Prescribing Evaluability Assessment

In August 2019, S3 Solutions and Elemental were commissioned by HSE Health and Wellbeing, National Office of Suicide Prevention and the Department of Health to conduct an evaluability assessment of Social Prescribing in Ireland. This assessment is a key input to the development of a monitoring and evaluation framework for Social Prescribing in Ireland.

The evaluability assessment within this report is limited to twelve Social Prescribing projects in  operation in Ireland identified by the HSE at the project commencement stage. The objectives of this project were, to undertake an evaluability assessment of Social Prescribing projects in Ireland by:

  • Providing an overview and synthesis of current Social Prescribing services and programmes in Ireland in terms of the underlying theory of change and programme logic models.
  • Assessing the capacity of the current Social Prescribing system in Ireland to collect process, output and outcome data to support impact evaluation.
  • Developing a Minimum Data Outcomes Framework for Social Prescribing services in Ireland, using a consensus-based methodology, and providing recommendations on how to establish a system to collate and report on outcomes nationally.
