First providers approved for Impact for Growth strand

The Impact Management Programme has approved the first set of support providers to work with charities and social enterprises applying for impact management grants under the Impact for Growth strand.

The pilot phase of the grant programme opens next month and will award grants to organisations that want to improve their collection and use of data to help scale their impact and secure social investment or commissioned contracts.

Last week our first approved providers attended a training session on impact management delivered by our partners Impetus-PEF. All approved providers are required to attend the training - as are organisations applying for grants - to ensure a shared understanding of the purpose of the grants and the ambitions of the programme.

The approved providers brought their varied experiences and expertise to the session which prompted lots of lively discussions and useful feedback for the trainers. The full list of approved providers can be found here.

There will be an opportunity for further interested providers to learn more about the programme and a second provider approval window will open in June 2017.
