Description

Measuring Social Impact - now open to book. Due to popular demand we've added in an additional free Masterclass on measuring social impact.

This Masterclass aims to give people a better understanding of how they can measure their social impact; the importance of recording social impact (how it can help to both improve what you do and also seek funding) and demystify what is still seen as a complex issue. We will cover:
  • How to decide what to measure and why.
  • What types of social impact measurements there are.
  • What methods can you use to collect data - and how to do this simply.
  • How can you use this data to run your organisation better.
  • Examples from other social enterprises and charities demonstrating how they've successfully achieved this.
Key note speaker is Marcus Hulme, the Social Value Director at Places for People one of the largest property management, development, regeneration and leisure companies in the UK. His role is to maximise, multiply and measure social value across the Group of over 20 companies. Previously Marcus was Social Impact Director at Big Society Capital, where he led on social impact and developed programmes to provide support to social enterprises with their impact measurement approach. Marcus worked for ten years at the Big Lottery Fund as a Senior Policy and Learning Manager which involved designing and delivering funding programmes and designing evaluation studies to measure impact and gather learning. Marcus is formerly a trustee of Relate South East London, a member of the Key Fund investment panel and Chair of the Cabinet Office’s Impact Readiness Fund and started his career working at a homeless charity in the East End.
