What is it about?

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.

The training will help you:

  • Understand the model: learn what it is, where it comes from, and how it can be used to benefit your organisation.
  • Consider different types of theory of change: decide what form of theory of change your grant-making comes under.
  • Create your own: identify your end goal, and apply backwards mapping to your own organisation (or a programme) to identify and prioritise your outcomes. Use it to inform internal discussions, collecting the views of staff from across your organisation to achieve consensus and buy-in.
  • Decide whether to encourage your grantees to use a theory of change: learn about the benefits of theory of change for charities, and how you can encourage grantees to adopt the approach without overburdening them.
  • Review your theory of change: think through how to get information to assess whether your theory of change is working and use it to review your strategy.
