Five types of data for impact measurement

About this event

This in-person workshop is for charities who want to effectively evaluate and measure their impact, but struggle with getting the right data. This introductory workshop is particularly geared towards small and medium-sized charities.

The workshop will:

  • Discuss why charities should measure their impact, followed by a brief summary of good impact practice.
  • Explain how to design your impact measurement and data collection in such a way that it will help you understand how your programme or service is working and how you can make it better.
  • Share the five types of data and discuss the importance of each type of data, the type of questions to ask, as well as possible appropriate measures to obtain the different types of data.
  • Share practical tips on how to keep your data collection proportionate, and some tools and tech that can help boost your efficiency.

This workshop will be interactive and limited in capacity, so there will be plenty of opportunities to ask your questions and get one to one time with our NPC expert. This training will be lead by NPC’s principal of data Sarah Sandford, and will draw on NPC’s five types of data framework, which are fundamental for monitoring and evaluating services or programmes.

Event timings: Join us at 9.45am for tea/coffee, we will begin at 10am.
