Sarah specialises in the monitoring and evaluation of waste prevention activities and sustainable behaviour change. Working with our Oxfordshire-based Community Action Groups Project, Sarah has led the development of our Community Impact Modelling Tool (CIMT). The tool estimates the impacts that community-led activities have on waste prevention, energy savings, carbon emissions and cost savings. Through the CIMT, Sarah has experience working on a multi-stakeholder project, managing the needs of each stakeholder, adapting documents and reports to different audiences, meeting targets and reporting to funders.
Sarah has experience of working with communities in the UK, through working with the CAG Project, and overseas, through various voluntary roles. Over ten years of sustained personal voluntary experience informs her work with the community sector, allowing her to respond to group needs and give constructive guidance and support. She has written a variety of reports, project summaries and user guides; delivered workshops and feedback sessions with community groups; researched existing data on the impact of behaviour change measures and monitoring and evaluation processes; and designed a user-friendly and efficient data collection process.
