Your organisation exists to make a difference, whether that's enriching people's lives, helping a particular cause or creating a better world. The difference you make is often called your impact.
Focusing on your impact will help your organisation be as successful as possible in reaching your goals. NCVO can help you define what impact means for your organisation, how you can achieve your goals and demonstrate impact.
