In 2016 the Shape Up programme commissioned the University of Hertfordshire to do a qualitative evaluation of Shape Up. Researchers from the university attending sessions and spoke to participants about their experiences of the programme.
The report was published in 2016 and can be found opposite. Off the back of the research, many changes were implemented to address the suggestions outlined. 3 1/2 years on and the programme has developed significantly.
