Social impact measurement and reporting


Why measure and report impact? - strategy, approaches, benefits and understanding, communications with stakeholders and staff, encouraging credibility and accountability.

What do you need to do to demonstrate impact? - definition of what social impact means at an individual and organsational level.. How your organisation is impacting on the community that you work with.

How do you do it? - mechanisms and tool kits for data capture, key performance indicators, measuring the distance travelled and benchmarking.

Delivery could be as a practical workshop  for a group or could be delivered  to support individuals of organisations to enhance their current performance monitoring and reporting. 

We will use our experience gained as the RBS SE100 Trailblazing Newcomers and our approaches to developing our annual social impact report.


This will be complemented with many examples of measuring and reporting impact gained during in our years in schools, local authorities and local communities.
