This evaluation report brings together the statistical information from the Growing Up project as well as a wealth of qualitative evidence from interviews with trainees, families, staff, volunteers and referral agencies. The analysis of this data offers insights into what service users have found valuable about the Growing Up experience and what is working well to carry forward into the future.

Growing Up is a project that offers young people with a learning disability the opportunity to gain skills and work experience in horticulture. It's run by Barnardo¿s Family Support Team in Dundee with support from the Big Lottery Fund. This year the project was half way through it's funded time and we undertook a midway evaluation to assess how the project was performing.
