The Pathway strand is for charities and social enterprises that are new to impact management.
Using a co-design approach we are designing a support service which will guide you through the stages of impact management so you can get started with minimal external support. It has been an iterative process of prototyping, testing and refining and we have worked with 100+ organisations around the country.
The user-centred approach of co-design will ensure that what we produce is usable and appropriate to real sector needs. We have run sessions across regions and also for organisations working in specific thematic area such as mental health.
The first stage has been a series of interactive co-design workshops. They have included exercises to identify support needs and each session has involved lots of discussions and post it notes!
Following these sessions, we developed and tested content for a digital platform. www.impactsupport.org was launched in March 2018! The website is full of free resources to help you understand your impact from planning and data collection, to utilising the data.
We are also hosting regional peer events to support you to learn from each other.
- Increase your understanding of how to measure and manage your impact.
- Share your experience and needs to help shape the programme.
- Ensure the support developed is user-friendly and fit for purpose.
- Learn from and collaborate with others in your sector.
What support is available?
We are keen to hear from lots of different organisations so to help make this possible we have funds available to cover reasonable travel costs and other expenses as needed. Payment amounts will be agreed depending on the level of involvement required.
