The Charity Governance Code mandates that Boards regularly evaluate the charity’s impact. Boards have a critical role to play in driving an impact focus throughout their organisation. It is a positive sign that among the top answers that boards reported discussing in Charities taking charge, were ‘changing strategy based on learning or evidence’, and ‘the use of data to inform activities’. But there is still work to do.

Collecting data on impact is essential for an effectiveness and impact—but what should trustees do with it? Some charities are collecting a lot of data but struggling to turn it into insights. Others are gleaning insights from data but not acting on them. Trustees should be using data to review, learn and improve the work of their charity, as well as communicate effectively and accurately about what it is they do, and why and how they do it.

This seminar run in partnership with The Clothworker’s Company, will explore how trustees can use data to learn, and to inform strategy, programme design, and resource allocation—and therefore increase a charity’s impact.

Speakers include:

  • James Noble, Impact management led, NPC
  • Sarah Anderson, Trustee, The Listening Place
