Demonstrating our Impact
It’s vital that we measure the impact we have. It ensures we effectively assess not only the value of our support, but the difference it makes to people’s lives. More than just counting numbers, impact is the long-term contribution we can make to:
- The lives of services users
- The communities they live in
- Reducing the need for further care and support in the future
We can evidence significant impact across our four specialist service areas – Early Years, Children and Families, Adult Mental Health and Wellbeing and Grants.
Our most recent impact report focusses on understanding how our services have had a positive effect on the lives of the children, young people and families we support.
The second impact report we commissioned highlights how we use the Theory of Change to demonstrate how our activities contribute to outcomes which, in turn, help us achieve our final goal.
Our 2014 inaugural Impact Report focused on a successful service from each of our areas of work.
Our services are innovative, and by focusing on interventions that improve outcomes in these areas, we can have a positive effect on the lives of services users, on those who commission our services, and on those who create policy and influence change. We conduct in house and external evaluations and all our up-to-date reports can be found here:
