COMING SOON: Impact Measurement Tool

Do you struggle with demonstrating impact? Are you confused by all the different tools on offer?

HCF Training is partnering with SEEE to provide social impact measurement support for small to medium sized voluntary sector organisations in Hertfordshire. By using this service, you will be given access to their impact measurement ‘Toolkit‘, alongside training specifically developed to guide you through the process. You will also be assisted with diagnostic support from an experienced consultant. As a result, your organisation will have in place a comprehensive and systematic plan for measuring impact. As competition for funding increases, being able to effectively demonstrate the impact of your organisation to funders, members of the community and other stakeholders, will be vital.

This offer will not be available until September, however to register your interest in this service, please contact Ana at hcftraining@hertscf.org.uk. Full funding will be available for organisations taking part.

Contact us at hcftraining@hertscf.org.uk if you would like to discuss your training needs.
