For over 10 years, Sustain has mapped and reported on Greater London’s borough level commitments to healthy and sustainable food through the annual survey and report Good Food Local: the London Report (previously Good Food for All Londoners). The report is a tool for improving good food practice and policy among London councils, by raising awareness of proven good food policies and good practice examples and providing an incentive for London councils to take action.

With support from Impact on Urban Health, Sustain have begun expanding the tried and tested approach to other regions through the Good Food Local project. The approach is being piloted in the North East of England, and we are working towards developing a benchmarking tool available to all local authorities in the UK. To inform this process, we would like to better understand the impact of our benchmarking tool and understand which measures may currently lack more formal supportive evidence. Sustain is looking for a researcher (or researchers) to conduct an impact analysis on our work to benchmark local authority commitments to good food. We are seeking to commission an evaluation that will collate and review existing evidence relating to the measures in the survey and use this evidence to estimate the impact of the tool across London.
