Inspiring Impact evaluation and learning report
The UK-wide initiative Inspiring Impact has closed, but you can still access the Inspiring Impact resources over on NPC ‘s website. More resources will follow on NCVO’s website later this year.
So, what next? Social Value UK recently hosted an event to find out what small-to-medium-sized voluntary sector organisations need to measure impact effectively.
Sally Cupitt, an NCVO Associate who carried out the independent evaluation of Inspiring Impact, opened the event by presenting learnings from the programme. Discussions then focused how to ensure the sustainability of impact practice in the voluntary sector, and how we can bring funders on board with this journey.
