Measuring the contribution of culture and sport to outcomes IDEA report 2010 by Yvonne Barker and Angela Watson

This research report presents the findings and recommendations from stage one of the ‘Measuring the Contribution of Culture and Sport to Outcomes’ Project. It has been produced by the Improvement and Development Agency (IDeA) on behalf of Arts Council England, English Heritage, the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council, Sport England and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

The overall project aim is:

  • ‘To develop and provide an appropriate form of guidance and support to assist the culture and sport sector to better measure and evidence its contribution to local priority outcomes as efficiently as possible from April 2011’.

The objectives of stage one of the project are to:

  • understand where we are now and provide a composite view on the state of progress in measuring the contribution of culture and sport to wider outcomes
  • identify good and/or new practice in this area
  • recommend whether the project should proceed to the next stage: the development of a model or framework.
