Our research

Research & Evaluation at Bromley By Bow Centre

As part of the Insights department, the Research teams is composed of community researchers who support project evaluation and work on original new community research.

A wide range of evaluation reports and tools are being created continually to help the Bromley By Bow Centre’s services delivery programme managers to keep improving to reflect the community’s needs. Those tools and learnings are made available for other organisations keen to learn from the Centre’s experience to recreate similar models in their own communities.

What makes a healthy, vibrant community?

In the summer of 2018, we published the results of our research project, Unleashing Healthy Communities. Two years of embedded research across the Bromley by Bow Centre and Health Partnership has:

  • Worked with staff and community members in creative and participatory ways
  • Investigated the Bromley by Bow model, through building a bank of stories and experience of living and working at Bromley by Bow
  • Explored what our community valued and ways to build health in a community
  • Provided a set of aspirational outcomes to help Bromley by Bow tell its story and measure its impact

Our work included a community research project, which worked with artists, local residents and community researchers to explore ‘what are the ingredients of a good life?’ and document this process.
