This is the latest release in the series: The Evaluation of the Post Office Diversification Fund
The PODF was established in January 2009 by the Welsh Government following the commitment to open a refocused fund for post offices in the One Wales policy document. The aim of the PODF was to encourage post offices to diversify, and improve the retail businesses attached to post offices, thereby enabling them to remain commercially viable and sustainable, and benefit local communities more widely.
The evaluation reports on whether the aims and objectives of the PODF have been achieved and makes a series of recommendations, which include making a case for continued intervention in Wales.
