Union Modernisation Fund round 3: evaluation

Evaluation report on projects funded under the third round of the Union Modernisation Fund.


This report evaluates the third round of the Union Modernisation Fund (UMF3) and the extent to which the projects are embedding new ways of working especially for vulnerable workers.

This report:

  • explores the success of individual projects in relation to both their specified aims and objectives and the overall aims and objectives of UMF3
  • looks at the nature and extent of the direct benefits, good practice and lessons learnt
  • considers the extent to which projects successfully handled difficult challenges or unanticipated obstacles
  • evaluates the extent to which UMF3 projects have enabled unions to embed longer-term cultural and behavioural change
