Who we are

Inspiring Impact is managed and delivered by seven organisations. These include membership bodies to ensure the programme is owned by the sector, and impact measurement specialists to reflect best practice.

Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF) is the membership body for UK foundations and grant-making charities. ACF leads Inspiring Impact’s work with funders.

Building Change Trust was set up in 2008 to develop and shape the future of Northern Ireland’s voluntary and community sector. The trust is delivering a linked programme in Northern Ireland, in parallel with Inspiring Impact’s work in England, Wales and Scotland.

NCVO Charities Evaluation Services is a leading provider of support and advice on quality and evaluation systems for the voluntary sector and the largest umbrella body for the voluntary and community sector in England.

Evaluation Support Scotland (ESS) works with voluntary organisations and funders so that they can measure and report on their impact and improve their services. ESS leads Inspiring Impact’s work in Scotland, translating the programme to a Scottish context and delivering Scotland-specific activities.

New Philanthropy Capital (NPC) is an independent think tank and consultancy dedicated to helping charities and funders achieve a greater impact.

Substance is a social research and technology agency working in the youth, sport and social development sectors.

Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) supports and represents voluntary organisations in Wales and leads Inspiring Impact’s work in this area of the UK.
