Understanding your impact and sharing what you learn about is key to the voluntary sector becoming more effective. Meanwhile, with results and value for money coming under increasing scrutiny, demonstrating your impact to others is also important. Led by our expert measurement team, this workshop will take you through our four pillar approach, helping you decide what to measure, understand what different types of data will tell you, and which methodology to use.

With a group size of no more than 15, the workshop will be interactive and hands-on. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
