In 2017 Lloyds Bank Foundation established the Transform programme with the aim of influencing policy and strengthening infrastructure and innovation in the domestic and sexual abuse sectors.

It invested £1.6m to fund 16 projects which all aimed to create social change by influencing others - individuals, services and systems - to do things differently. Whilst some were focused on influencing policy (nationally, regionally or locally), others sought to build the evidence base on needs and interventions, to develop and share models and/or to develop more effective partnerships to influence change.

Recognising that the ‘business of influencing’ was new to many organisations, the Foundation provided support via a series of learning events. The funded projects were also supported by an independent evaluation and learning partner, DMSS Research, who helped projects develop theories of change, provided ongoing mentoring and helped the Foundation to synthesise and share the learning from the programme.

This report explores the key achievements and impacts of the projects, as well as learning from across the Transform programme about what factors were significant ingredients of success.
