On the 2nd November 2020, Dr Clare Littleford joined the A Better Start Southend core team Research and Evaluation Manager.

Before beginning her journey with A Better Start Southend, Clare was a Senior Researcher and latterly Research Director at The National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) where she led on a large range of studies. She has an extensive career background in research and gained her PHD in 2013 from Loughborough University in Environmental Psychology.

Clare is now firmly embedded in the A Better Start Southend programme, and alongside her central focus – building the evidence base for ABSS Sustainability and Legacy after the programme ends in 2025 – she will also be managing many different ABSS Research and Evaluation initiatives, including:

  • Programme Evaluation Partnership with the University of Essex
  • Data Support and Analysis Services with Southend-on-Sea Borough Council
  • Independent Programme-wide Evaluation with RSM UK

In addition, Clare will be representing Southend as part of the A Better Start national evaluation. She will also be supporting our excellent team of Project Managers with their delivering programmes, particularly focusing on the Formative Evaluation process of each of our services.
