An outcomes framework is a resource to help you link what you do (activities) with what you want to achieve (outcomes).

An outcomes framework is made up of different 'tools'. At the moment we use these tools:

  • outcome triangles which provide an overview of the topic area, specifying intermediate and long term outcomes and indicating the key service delivery areas which contribute to these outcomes
  • logic models which map out the links between activities and outcomes and
  • results chains which indicate the contributions of different organisations or sectors to the outcomes

 How can the framework be used?

The models included in the framework can be used by anyone involved in the delivery of greenspace (individual spaces or wider networks) or in promoting healthy uses of greenspaces to:

  • improve planning and delivery to maximise the likelihood of successfully delivering health outcomes
  • develop a clearer rationale for the way in which greenspace is delivering on local and/or national priority health outcomes

The framework is made up of:

  • a suite of generic models here
  • a series of tailored models here
