Knowing and Showing Your Outcomes and Impacts
Community, voluntary and charity organisations exist to make a difference in the lives of the people and communities that they serve. Quantifying, measuring, understanding and communicating that difference can, however, pose significant challenges.
Knowing and Showing Your Outcomes and Impacts is the fifth guide in The Wheel's Solid Foundation series of good-practice guides, which reflect The Wheel’s commitment to strengthen the capacity of our members, by providing relevant support and up to date information on the shared issues affecting our sector.
The Wheel developed this new good practice guide to help community and voluntary organisations to cultivate an outcomes-focused and impact-led approach to their work by:
- Explaining the key concepts and benefits of the outcomes-focused and impact-led approach
- Introducing sample indicators abd impact assessment tools
- Highlighting a number of relevant case studies
- Signposting to further information and resources.
Striving for An Outcomes-focused and Impact-led Approach
Knowing and Showing Your Outcomes and Impacts is an essential guide for any community, voluntary or charity organisation regardless of age, size, geographic remit or area of focus. Its principles are also readily transferable to social enterprises.
It may also be of interest to those who work with any such organisations, including statutory and philanthropic funders, investors, private companies practising corporate social responsibility and consultants/advisors. Although the guide focuses on the Irish experience, its content may also be applicable in an international context.
