Charities are constantly being asked to demonstrate what difference they are making, not just what they are delivering. Good impact reporting can show funders how resources are utilised and highlight what changes an organisation has made on society. Impact results can also inspire your staff, volunteers and trustees. However, many voluntary organisations struggle to know what should be measured and how to include this information in reports. This course aims to demystify impact measurement and reporting. It will be interactive and you will have the opportunity of discussing your reporting needs as part of the course.

What will I learn?

  • The language of impact and its measurement
  • To align impact measurement with strategy and objectives
  • Practical tips to collect and analyse data for reporting
  • To discuss good examples of impact reporting and apply learning to your organisation
  • Be more confident about how to measure results of your projects
