Background

As community, voluntary and charity organisations we work to bring about positive change in the lives of the people and communities we serve.  Everything we do should be aimed at improving people’s lives and bringing about positive change for communities. 

But how do we know we are really doing the best we can?  How do we know that the activities, services and supports that we provide deliver the best possible outcomes for the people and communities we serve? We will know when we are clear about the change we are trying to bring about in people’s lives, and have indicators that enable us to measure our progress in bringing this change about.

Feedback from Previous Attendees of The Wheel's Knowing & Showing Your Impact & Outcomes Events

"I found it useful to have to identify the outcome for the day's learning and thinking about the difference in short, medium and long-term outcomes for my organisation. I definitely feel more confident in my ability to identify and discuss outcomes and the ways to measure those outcomes in relation to my work. I also found the case study to be a really useful exercise and cleared up any confusion I had about outputs, outcomes, and indicators." - T. Purcell, SpunOut.ie
 
"I learned more about outputs / outcomes and impact. This information gave me clarity in developing training programmes and in up skilling our panel of Trainers. It will also improve my skills when applying for funding and issuing reports. I found the recommended websites very useful. Thank you." - D. Sullivan, National Parents Council Primary
 
Best Wheel event I have attended to date. Really very good topic, very well presented and content was pitch perfect." - B.Duffy, Druid
