First and foremost, thanks are due to the men, women, staff and stakeholders who gave up their time to speak to us for this evaluation. Without them, this evaluation would not have been possible. We are also extremely grateful to the Caledonian Data Champions for their help in providing and answering queries about the monitoring data. Particular thanks are owed to Xander Flatt for his patience in helping us understand the structure of the data. The help of the Caledonian teams in recruiting men and women to the research was essential and we are very grateful to them for this. Finally, we would like to thank the Scottish Government research advisory group for their advice and support throughout the evaluation - Sacha Rawlence, Catherine Bisset, Tamsyn Wilson, Gordon Mason and Siobhan Mackay (Scottish Government), and Rory Macrae (City of Edinburgh Council).
All analysis and interpretation in this report is the responsibility of the authors.
