Our Resource Hub is a one-stop shop for impact resources and tools relevant to improving impact practice, such as guidance, research, outcomes frameworks and surveys. The Resource Hub has been developed with input from resource providers, funders, impact specialists and front-line charity staff.

If you already know what you are looking for you can find resources by using the filters that match your needs and/or entering keywords, individual resource names or features in the search box. You might want to use Measuring Up! first to identify the areas of impact practice you can improve and the sorts of resources that will help you.

Remember that the more filters and search criteria you apply, the fewer the results that will be displayed. So if you want to search the whole database using keywords then click the ‘Clear All Filters’ box before you use the search box. If you can’t find the resource you want or if you know of other resources that you think could be listed here, please get in touch.
