Social Impact: How to Measure

Purpose of course: 

What is social impact and how do we measure it? How do we best monitor and evaluate our service to show the impact we are making in the community?

Join this course to learn more about evidencing the impact of your befriending project to demonstrate your work to stakeholders and funders. This 3hour workshop will review the latest research in social impact, developments in social finance, and the challenges we face while measuring and evidencing the impact of befriending projects on the community. There will be the opportunity to learn key theory and measurement frameworks as well as learn from others and share experiences.

All attendees will receive a measurement toolkit as well as a copy of any slides used. To ensure the 3hrs is productive and enjoyable, there will be a coffee break at each hour. Please note that this event is suitable for befriending staff/trustees but is not appropriate for volunteer befrienders.
