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 ensures that what we produce is usable and appropriate to real sector needs. We run co-design and user testing sessions across regions in specific thematic areas such as mental health.
Free impact support website
We launched impactsupport.org in March 2018 after a co-design process with over 100 charities and social enterprises. It is full of tools and guidance to help you collect, analyse and use your data.
The data diagnostic tool provides you with tailored recommendations for what data to collect and how to use it.
Our thematic tools can help you design an outcomes framework for three different sectors: education, mental health and well-being, and housing.
- 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.
Our programme design process
The first stage was interactive co-design workshops with over 100 charities and social enterprises across England. They included exercises to identify support needs and each session involved lots of discussions and post it notes!
