Inspiring Impact’s vision is that good impact practice becomes the norm in the voluntary sector.

Charities and social enterprises do fantastic work, but may be held back by poor quality information about the impact of that work. With the right support, we believe they are capable of even greater things.

Our online resources, self-assessment tools, peer learning networks, and grant funding motivate and guide people who work for voluntary organisations to create a culture of continuous improvement, so they can better serve the people they support.

Established in 2012, Inspiring Impact is delivered by a coalition of six organisations across the UK: Community Evaluation Northern Ireland, Evaluation Support Scotland, NCVO Charities Evaluation Services, NPC, Social Value UK, and Wales Council for Voluntary Action.

Our current focus

More and more charities, social enterprises and funders want to understand and improve the impact that they make. We all want to do that in a way that’s proportionate to our organisation’s activities and resources. But engaging our colleagues and making data and learning part of our day-to-day activities can feel difficult.

Inspiring Impact is here to help. If you’re trying to do things better, we can provide inspiration, online resources and space to learn and share with others. We’re really excited to focus on a couple of things in particular:

  • How we can make our evaluation work relevant and sensible for our organisation
  • How we can make impact practice a day-to-day activity that is valued and shared across our organisation
