Centre for social impact – measuring outcomes

Outcomes measurement has become almost synonymous with the for-purpose sector. It provides organisations with the evidence and knowledge they need to know what’s working and what’s not, and under what circumstances.

This knowledge also enables organisations to benefit the cause they are working for and the individuals and communities they are working with, and is central to communicating impact to funders, partners and supporters.

While the importance of outcomes measurement is clear many organisations find themselves hamstrung; expected to have the internal expertise, or the capacity to employ external support despite an often limited budget.

We invite you to join us at this impact2021 webinar for an interactive and practical panel discussion and Q&A to unpack options and opportunities for measuring your organisation’s outcomes and demonstrating your social impact, ‘on a shoestring’.
