Thursday 23 February 2017, 9.30am-5pm – 151 Dale Street.
Already collecting positive outcomes data? Seeking to raise investments or contracts? Join the GROWTH strand to access training, grant funding and support to help you develop the impact management systems you need.
Attending this free one day impact management training session is a compulsory stage in the application process. Up to two people from each organisation should attend, including ideally the CEO. The training will be delivered by Impetus-PEF and will cover the building blocks of impact management and how to use the data you collect.
After this, you can then decide if you want to apply for a grant to support you further with your impact management – working with an approved provider to develop a project that will improve your systems and process.
The benefits of this training are:
- Learn how to use impact data to drive decision-making and improve outcomes
- Understand the building blocks for effective impact management
- Identify providers who could best support your work
- Improve bids for future funding
£1.8m of funding is available to distribute around 40 awards of an average size of £50,000. The grants will enable organisations to work with an approved provider for up to one year. The grants can be used to buy provider time, to pay for additional staff to assist with impact management, or to buy necessary software or hardware to help collect impact data. Whatever you want to use a grant for, you will need to demonstrate why you need this to develop your impact management, and how this will make a difference to your organisation.
The first round of training sessions are running in February and March 2017 and applications for a pilot round of grants will open in February.
You are eligible if you:
- Are committed to understanding and improving your social impact
- Wish to grow and scale your impact
- Collect outcome data which indicates a positive impact and have a theory of change
- Are actively seeking investment and contract opportunities – and improving impact management would help secure these
- Have impact focused trustees and staff
- Are established and working in England
