Things have been changing fast in the voluntary sector with an overhaul of commissioning and reductions in public spending, new approaches to fundraising, the arrival of social investment, the growth of social enterprises and the emergence of the Open Data movement. How does the sector adapt to maintain and improve its impact and to maximise its role within civil society? Dan Corry, Chief Executive, NPC 09:30 Panel And Roundtable Discussion: What Do We Mean By Collecting “Good” Evidence? Charities are coming under increasing pressure to prove their worth to society, but what counts as good evidence? This panel will explore the ways of collecting and using evidence to boost your value and improve performance. j; How can you develop an evidence-based approach which is robust and defensible without spending a fortune? j; What are good standards of evidence? j; What innovative and creative ways are there to collect evidence? j; How do you engage stakeholders in the process? Joe Ludlow, Impact Investment Director, Nesta Investment Management LLP David Hounsell, Business Performance and Impact Manager, The Children’s Society Fran Perrin, Founder and Director, The Indigo Trust 10:40 How To Gather Evidence Without Breaking The Bank This session will explore how internal processes can be improved to facilitate better data collection: j What are the cost-efficient ways to integrate data/evidence collection into existing processes? j How can you develop simple tools to store and analyse data and how can you train staff to use them more effectively? Nicolas Ponset, Managing Partner, Aleron Third Sector Consulting 10:55 Case Study: How Clinks Collects Evidence On Criminal Justice Outcomes Voluntary and community sector organisations are increasingly being asked to demonstrate good quality evidence of their effectiveness: j; How is Clinks’ ‘Improving Your Evidence’ project working to stimulate the visibility, collection and use of evidence by criminal justice organisations? j; How can this approach be used in other sectors, such as social care and children’s services? Clive Martin, Director, Clinks 11:15 Morning Refreshments 11:35 Case Study: How Greenhouse Has Developed A Theory Of Change For organisations looking to improve their services and measure their impact more effectively, developing a theory of change is a good place to start. Greenhouse will unveil how they worked on their theory of change: it involved looking backwards from the charity’s overall aim, to understand all the steps involved in achieving it. This session will explore how to map out day-to-day activities that contribute to an organisation’s mission. Graeme Duncan, Head of Development, Greenhouse 12:00 Workshops: Working Together On Measurement In these workshops, delegates will have the opportunity to discuss how collaboration can make the sector more effective through learning from each other, saving money on the costs of developing bespoke tools, and building an evidence-based framework that works. 1. A Blueprint For Shared Measurement This session will explore what we understand shared measurement to be and the benefits and challenges associated with it. It will use the Journey to Employment framework of shared measurement to illustrate how a shared measurement framework can work and the lessons that can be drawn for other areas. David Pritchard, Head of Measurement and Evaluation, NPC “ “New methods, new technology and a growing recognition of the practical value of using data – all are combining to change the impact landscape. We can all learn from this by sharing experience and insights to enhance the quality of our work.” David Carrington the funder and social investor perspective measuring better, together unleash the power of data making impact part of your dna the funder and social investor perspective measuring better, together unleash the power of data making impact part of your dna

Inspiring Impact: Finding The Right Measurement Tools Impact measurement is currently hampered by the lack of a mature market for impact measurement tools. New tools are emerging that vary in quality and usability, and work is needed to bring the most robust and useful tools to the market. An increasing number of charities and social enterprises seek off-the-shelf tools and systems, but lack the skills to select the right one. This workshop will explore Inspiring Impact’s prototype online marketplace for tools. Tim Crabbe, Chair and Director of Strategy, Substance 3.
