This report is an independent evaluation of the Play Shaper programme, demonstrating some of the successes of the programme to date and providing useful direction for the future of the programme.
The report considers the first phase of the Play Shaper programme delivered by a partnership led by Play England with Playwork Partnerships and SkillsActive. This work was commissioned by the former Department for Children Schools and Families in November 2008.
The evaluation was carried out between January and October 2010 by Ecorys (formerly ECOTEC).
The report was written by Laurie Day, Nicola Smith and Jo Barham.
