Measuring up!

This page is free to all

Assess and improve your impact practice. Measuring up! is a straightforward, step-by-step self-assessment tool that allows you to review and improve your organisation’s impact practice – that is, the way you plan, evidence, communicate and learn from the difference that your work makes.

Measuring Up! has been designed for use by all kinds of charitable organisations, social enterprises and funders. There are three versions available:

  • Measuring Up! for small organisations (those with an income of £0-£100,000 or newer to impact practice)
  • Measuring Up! for medium to large voluntary organisations (those with an income of £100,000+ or more experienced in impact practice)
  • Measuring Up! for funders (all types of voluntary sector funders)

NCVO Charities Evaluation Services led the development of the tool as part of the Inspiring Impact collaborative program.
