Abstract The role of the voluntary and community sector in delivering activities to reduce inequalities has been recognised within recent public health policy and practice. This asset-based approach builds on the 2010 Public Health White Paper 'Healthy Lives, Healthy People', which presented a focus on wellbeing and prevention, with a shift in power to local communities. The role of community development has been positioned as integral to improving health and wellbeing and the reduction of inequalities. However, evidence regarding the impact and outcomes of community activities is not robustly or readily collected.Our research methodology is embedded within a social value framework and draws on Program Theory to explore and evidence the outcomes, social value and mechanisms of change brought about by individual projects. To help these smaller projects evidence the more immediate health and wellbeing impacts, a secure web-based monitoring tool has been developed to enable projects to collect relevant data and embed a standardised set of indicators that will measure and evidence key outcomes. A case study approach is also being adopted to explore what has happened as a result of specific projects, with a particular focus on exploring this from a social value perspective.It is anticipated that this work will help projects to: measure some of their key outcomes; provide evidence of the change, manage their programmes and maximise their value.
