Inspiring Impact in Wales

By Ellen Harries 12 March 2014

The Inspiring Impact team have been busy this year, making sure charities and funders across the UK have plenty of opportunities to engage with the programme.

As a partnership of membership bodies—NCVO , ACEVO, ACF and the WCVA—and  measurement and evaluation experts—NPC , CES, ESS, CENI, BCT and Substance—we  have a big and exciting vision: to make high quality impact measurement the norm in the non-profit sector by 2022.

We’ve certainly got our work cut out. But with a range of tools and advice already on our website, and more underway, we proceed undaunted!

One thing’s for sure: access to good resources is imperative for organisations wishing to improve their impact practice. And getting the message out there is something we’ve been having great success on—sparking debate on LinkedIn, making connections on Twitter, and getting mentions from Nick Hurd and Dawn Austwick from the Big Lottery in the latest Charity Times magazine.

And to add to our list of recent developments, I am very pleased to announce that the Code of Good Impact Practice has been gyfieithu i’r Gymraeg (that’s ‘translated into Welsh’, in Welsh).

The Code is a keystone document for those working in the impact space—produced  for the sector and by the sector—and outlines what good impact practice is, and how organisations can foster, develop and encourage better impact reporting.

If you’re a welsh charity, funder or social enterprise, you can access the translated Code of Good Impact Practice through the Inspiring Impact website. We’re also working closely with the WCVA to make sure the Code reaches everyone who might benefit from it.

It’s great to see the programme developing as a truly UK-wide venture. Speaking of which, keep your eyes peeled for more news from Inspiring Impact Northern Ireland, launching formally this month.
