dc.description.abstractEcological approaches to health promotion have been increasingly adopted to address the complexities of increasing population level physical activity. These approaches understand individual behaviour in terms of the outcome of interactions between multiple biological, psycho-sociological and environmental factors which require complex and multilevel interventions. However, the health promotion field has been hampered by a lack of evaluation frameworks that provide sufficient flexibility to accommodate the complexity of ‘real world’ settings which lie at the heart of ecological approaches. In order to evaluate a small grants community health promotion programme this study deployed a social-ecological evaluation framework operationalised through a Social Return on Investment (SROI) methodology. This sought to understand and assess the broader social outcomes relating to the implementation of range of local physical activity and sport projects, and to maintain stakeholder engagement throughout. The formative and summative components of the evaluation are described before results are presented, which include qualitative findings and outcome indicator values. Findings highlight a diverse range of societal outcomes at the individual level for example, improved physical and mental health, and community level for example, community connectedness, which reflect a range of social, personal and interpersonal, and economic benefits. The SROI methodology not only provides social enterprises with a framework for measuring performance and impact, but is also shown to be a valuable management and stakeholder engagement tool for those commissioning local physical activity and sport programmes of this type.en_US
