How to Measure Outcomes

Are you proving your impact?


At NPC's   How To Measure Outcomes: Practical Tips And Tools conference in partnership with Third Sector, we will equip you with step-by-step guidance on how to measure, evaluate and report your outcomes. Done well, monitoring and evaluation can provide useful insights into what is working and what is not, it can inform management decisions about how to divide up valuable resources, please funders, and influence other stakeholders and policy.
