About impact practice
Impact practice encompasses all the activities you do to focus on impact. It’s about learning how to best serve the people you support. This means planning what difference you want your programme or service to make; collecting the right information to know if you’re achieving your goals; assessing what impact you’re having; and learning from the results to improve your work.
It helps to know more about yourself when deciding what to do next. Our simple self-assessment tools help you identify how to improve your impact practice and data collection.
