Measuring your impact: An introductory workshop for charities

This workshop will be interactive and hands-on with real life examples to help you get to grips with measuring your impact.

Posted: 10/02/2012

‘We make a difference’. This is probably one of the most commonly heard statements in the charity world. But have you ever stopped to think about what it really means?

Charities and funders make a difference to people’s lives in countless ways. But just knowing you are probably making some kind of difference isn’t enough: for this information to be useful, you need to know exactly what difference you are making, how much, and how it happens. In the current economic climate and with the government increasingly interested in payment by results, being able to prove the impact you have is a huge advantage.

NPC’s measurement team are experts in assessing the impact of charities’ work. They have worked with charities of all shapes and sizes to develop robust and systematic methods to measure impact. NPC’s workshop on impact measurement will see them share this knowledge, taking you through the main steps involved in developing an impact measurement framework.

Using real life examples, the workshop will focus on:

  • Developing a theory of change: how to use a theory of change approach to help you understand the main outcomes you need to start measuring
  • Selecting measurement tools: how to find and select tools to start measuring your impact in a robust way
  • Starting to measure: how to implement a measurement system and the practicalities of measurement.

Venue: New Philanthropy Capital, 185 Park Street, London SE1 9BL
