Measuring social impact helps VCSEs become more effective
Bootstrap Co (helps incubate micro-enterprise in Hackney), Sunnyside Rural Trust (helping those furthest away from employment provide green services to local council) and All Saints Action Network (a community hub) tell us how social impact measurement has helped them become better enterprises.
Evidencing social impact is mission critical for organisations in the business of delivering impact.
It is a valuable part of the organisation's management information which helps better decision-making, improved delivery and enhanced social impact. Reporting on social impact helps social enterprises remain accountable to their donors, investors, commissioners, local communities and most importantly their beneficiaries or customers.
