Funding Local Causes

Assessing and communicating your impact

How can you show that you are making a real difference in order to build trust, rapport and credibility for your services?

Making a difference to the lives of individuals, communities, or the environment is the reason why your charity was established, This interactive workshop from The FSI, is the second in a series of two workshops we are providing on demonstrating impact. It will look at what to do once you have identified your outcomes and collected your data: how to analyse it and how to use the findings internally and externally.

This workshop will provide a range of tools and best practice advice to ensure that your charity is effectively assessing and communicating the difference it makes to donors, funders and supporters. It will cover how to analyse qualitative and quantitative data to draw out trends and learning for your organisation, and will review how best to communicate your impact externally.

The first workshop Measuring the difference your work makes is being held on Thu 05 May, you can find out more here

Both workshops can be attended individually, but we would encourage you to attend both parts.
