Lloyds Foundation Transform Programme

Lloyds Foundation Transform Programme

DMSS are the learning and evaluation partner for the Transform programme to improve responses to domestic and sexual abuse. In 2017, the Foundation's Transform grants programme invested more than £1.6m between 17 projects that meet two primary objectives:

  • Inform and influence responses to domestic and/or sexual abuse
  • Strengthen the sectors, particularly the role of smaller specialist providers, in response to the challenges facing them in England and/or Wales

DMSS are supporting the 17 projects to build their capacity to evaluate their impact and influence others, providing a series of workshops and resources as well as offering one to one support. We are also undertaking an overall evaluation of the programme to assess the difference this grant finding is making and to share the learning from the programme.
