Measuring Impact (Part2) - Theory of Change & Developing an Outcome Framework

The aim of this training is to translate your impact data into knowledge, to help you understand what is working and how your organisation is impacting on the lives of service users or communities.

This second Measuring Impact workshop builds on The Wheel’s previous workshop on designing logic models and choosing (and using) tools. Using your experience with impact measurement and the impact data that you have gathered, this training will explain how to best analyse your impact data and new approaches for showing how your charity creates an impact.

This workshop will guide you through the following steps:

  • Applying principles of impact measurement;
  • Analysing, understanding and learning from data we collect;
  • Understanding how to attribute the impact of your work to your charity; 
  • Designing a theory of change for your services and activities;

Participant Requirements:

Participants are recommended to have a good understanding of their charity’s approach to impact measurement and familiar with the tools (i.e. surveys, questionnaires) used to gather impact data. 

This workshop is aimed at community and voluntary organisations, charities or social enterprises that have attended the previous impact measurement training (Measuring Impact & Outcomes 1: introduction to the logic model and choosing and using tools). However, any organisation with a logic model or currently gathering impact data would find this workshop of benefit.
