Annual Conference Week -Online Workshop 2

Monday 27 June 2022

How to achieve impact maturity for purpose-focused charities

By definition, charities are purpose-based organisations, whether that is delivering programmes for changes and outcomes, leading societal change, or influencing others. Understanding their impact must always be at their core. 

This session will consider Impact Maturity as an organisation and address if your accounting and governance are helping to optimise the organisation’s impact.

Accounting, reporting, and governance have key roles in:

  • Delivery – by developing internal reporting more effectively to embrace the impact and effectiveness of programmes
  • Leadership – by how and what we communicate to partners and the effect that that has on them
  • Influence – by how we take knowledge and use it to influence policy and market behaviours – partly, but not exclusively in our annual statutory reporting
  • Accountability - How can we and should we embrace the model of Transparency-Accountability-Participation in our external engagement and reporting and build that back into decision-making.
