All of us live and breathe the work of our organisation and feel it’s obvious that it’s making a difference. But sometimes we may be wrong!

It may be that we are making more of a difference than we think. Recently a local community centre actually counted the number of users it had each week and found that it was near to 2,000, double what they thought!

We may think that everyone inside and outside our organisation knows what difference we make but when you ask them you get a different story. People, including funders, want to know what difference is being made so it reinforces their support. So there are good reasons for each organisation to know what difference it is making and ensuring they are able to measure it (however unscientific or statistical).

This 2 hour course will take you through:

  • some useful ideas and concepts about defining outcomes
  • how to measure them
  • tools to take away
  • how to get you started on designing an outcomes framework
