Charities to measure impact with free online tools

Two free online-impact measuring tools have been launched by a coalition of organisations including the Cabinet Office and the Big Lottery Fund, which could save the charity sector over £15m.

The two innovative tools include Measuring Up, which aims to help charities find out how well they are assessing the impact of their work on the people they support, and Impact Hub, which will gather the resources charities need to measure what they do in one place.

Nick Hurd, the Minister for Civil Society, said: “Charities and social enterprises are driven by a passion to make a difference to people’s lives. It’s crucial they have help to understand how well they are doing and how their work benefits the people who rely on them.

“These tools will be a huge boost for many charities that fear impact measurement and see it as confusing. By supporting this programme, the government is helping charities make an even bigger difference.”
