About this event
We often think about impact measurement or evaluation in terms of developing frameworks, tools and processes, but it’s engaging organisations to use them well which matters most. Whether you’re in a large or a small organisation, your ability to implement impact measurement and improve your programmes or services depends on other people. In an ideal world, everybody would take responsibility for impact, be curious about what works and what could be improved and be up for making changes based on your own data or existing evidence. Whether you’re a leader or an evaluation practitioner, it’s helpful to know how best you can influence how your colleagues collect, analyse and use data to make decisions.
This seminar will explore:
- How to involve everyone in impact – from trustees to frontline staff and volunteers
- How to develop a learning culture where people are curious and ask questions about what’s working and what could be improved
- How to demonstrate to your team why data and evidence matters to them and their work
- Practical tips to embed these new ways of working in your organisation
The seminar will be chaired by James Noble, NPC’s Impact Management Lead, and speakers will include:
- Rachel Tait, Senior Consultant, NPC
- Hannah Woods, Head of Evaluation and Learning, Gingerbread
- Tina Ramdeen, Head of Youth Policy and Engagement, Roundhouse

Our annual conference is designed to help charities keep pace with change and anticipate new trends and innovations to ensure their organisations are always maximising their social impact.
This short paper looks at what data visualisation is, how charities can get started using it, and provides handy tips and resources.
In this short practical guide, we outline how charities can turn their raw data into wisdom and informed action.
It takes time, money and expertise to collect and analyse data. Making your data meaningful means getting the most out of it—and getting the most out of the scarce resources allocated to collecting and analysing it. This briefing is a simple how-to for charities on maximising their use of data and, as a result, the work of their organisations.
