Inspiring Impact is on a mission to make good impact practice the norm by creating a culture of continuous improvement among voluntary organisations.
We are lead partner on Inspiring Impact, a programme that is on a mission to make good impact practice the norm by creating a culture of continuous improvement among voluntary organisations.
