Impact

The programme has supported over 100 organisations since 2013. Our case studies highlight how organisations and volunteers have benefitted from the programme, including helping them to:

  • Develop a robust measurement framework
  • Increase understanding around the difference they are making
  • Increase confidence when demonstrating their impact
  • Bid for and secure funding
  • Increase staff and trustee engagement around impact measurement
  • Embed a culture of impact measurement within the organisation
  • Use impact measurement to inform strategy and improve services

 

Here’s what some of the organisation we supported have said.

“We felt very well supported throughout the process. Our volunteer very quickly understood our charity and its current challenges and helped us really think about every aspect of what we do and what we could measure to evidence our benefit.”

“This opportunity came along at exactly the right time and has provided us with feedback and data that is invaluable as we develop and grow.”

“From a personal perspective the process and our volunteer’s support has been invaluable. It has really helped to focus and sharpen up our work and we now have a solid framework in which to sustain and grow the business.”

The volunteers find it just as rewarding.

“Rewarding, intellectually stimulating and challenging. It tested my interpersonal skills and my business knowledge and gave me exposure to strategic leadership and non-executive management.”

“Working with such passionate people has been a real joy! Volunteering is an opportunity to learn and use lots of soft skills how to give feedback, how to have challenging conversations in a constructive way its great for your own leadership skills.”
