All 38 initiatives were evaluated by one on one interviews with whānau who had received funding. Interviews were transcribed and analysed to identify impact statements. These impact statements were categorised and sorted under the Whānau Ora Pou, creating a social value framework. One initiative, a trade training scheme, was selected as a case study to apply a cost benefit analysis to determine if the investment had a positive financial return. In partnership with the AERU at Lincoln University the potential earnings as a result of training and employment were analysed for each of the 39 whānau involved in the scheme over their working life.
