London & South East Members' Meeting - London

Thursday, 14 Sep 2017, 15:00 - 18:30


Impact Reporting 

Impact reports are used by the charities themselves to assess their work and enable improvements and by donors and trustees to see how their support has impacted the organisation and its beneficiaries. Join us at the London members’ meeting as we take a look at writing compelling impact reports; from the data you should be including to how it should be presented. 

In response to member feedback, we’ve changed the format of some of the members’ meetings to allow for more discussion and debate between delegates and speakers. Importantly, the meetings will still include our popular networking receptions. The new format will be rolled out in 2017 at all regional meetings and most of the London meetings.  

This event will have a limit of 60 places.

What is needed from your impact report?

How to make the biggest impact in your report

Being able to better understand and measure your impact will enable you to effectively communicate your results.  Your report should tell a story about how money and resources are being used to fund a project rather than just listing the money spent.  This information will help you identify what works well and areas that need attention.

Louise Harvey, Director of Funding and Impact, St John's Foundation
