Shared measurement and outcome frameworks
Shared measurement involves charities with similar goals reaching a common understanding of what to measure and developing the tools to do so. When thinking about your impact and outcome goals it can be useful to look at how others, who are working with the same people as you, define and measure their impact. Read our report on shared measurement to find out more.
