Evaluation & Transformation
Helping you to demonstrate impact
We can develop a range of self-evaluation tools and procedures that enable you to monitor outputs and outcomes in order evaluate the difference you make and communicate your impact to funders.
Using interviews and questionnaires to gather feedback from your beneficiaries, staff and volunteers, as well as an independent analysis of your monitoring data, we can review the impact and effectiveness of your activities to give you a clear steer on where your precious time and resources are best spent and how outcomes can improve.
The quality review can be extended to a full external evaluation of your service in order to demonstrate the impact of your work to key stakeholders. See Emma’s recent evaluation and cost-benefit analysis of Depaul UK’s youth homelessness prevention service as an example of our work.
- Funders will be able to easily see the difference your organisation makes.
- Demonstrating progress against organisational aims will lead to improved clarity, sense of common purpose and teamwork within the organisation.
- Motivating staff and volunteers by providing evidence of the changes brought about by the good work you do.
- Identifying the strengths and weaknesses of your activities, thereby facilitating a process of self-improvement.
- Increasing success in fundraising applications, as the framework can easily be included in applications.

Our Think Tank is an intense half-day session to identify the problems, their causes and then generate bespoke solutions. We’ll follow up with written recommendations, tools, templates and a telephone call to help you achieve your goals.
