dc.description.abstractAn evaluation of the Barnardos Ballybeg Playground service was conducted to explore the experiences and impact of the service on the children, families, and the local community of Ballybeg, Waterford. A case study evaluation was conducted using qualitative methods, involving detailed interviews with children attending the service, their parents, staff and volunteers, as well as the gathering of fieldnotes. The objectives of the evaluation are: 1. To explore children’s experiences of their involvement in the service and what this means / how it has impacted on their lives. 2. To explore parents’ experiences of the service and evaluate their perceptions of their child’s involvement. 3. To explore how the programme is delivered in order to understand “what works” for children attending the service, as well as potential barriers to achieve service goals and objectives. 4. To examine the culture of the service and its delivery of child-centred, play-based supports. 5. To explore the impact of the service from the perspective of staff and volunteers within the service. 6. To examine the links with the local community and the impact of the service on the local community.en
