This report gives an overview of research undertaken to evaluate the impact of the JOY Project which is based in the City of Worcester, England. The project is "a woman only community project which provides support to enable women to gain a variety of skills, enhance their confidence and empower them to make their own informed decisions" (WCT, 2018a).

The evaluation considers the extent to which the project serves the local community by comparing data on service users with local socio-demographics and outlines the extent to which the project's aims and outcomes set by the funder, The Big Lottery Fund) are met. It highlights additional outcomes and captures the impact of project activities on service users. Ultimately, it draws conclusions about the quality, impact and value of the JOY Project.
