About Inspiring Impact

Inspiring Impact is a UK-wide partnership that aims to change the way the UK voluntary sector thinks about impact. The programme is managed and delivered by a partnership of organisations from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. These include membership bodies to ensure that it is owned by the sector, and impact measurement specialists to reflect best measurement practice. Evaluation Support Scotland (ESS) is the Inspiring Impact Scotland partner. 

Inspiring Impact Scotland

Scottish charities face many of the same challenges as their peers across the UK but do not always have the opportunity to access and learn about good practice from the rest of the UK. ESS shares learning about impact measurement and reporting from Scotland as well as producing resources and running an annual programme of free-to-access impact networking events for Scottish third sector organisations.

Inspiring Impact (UK) awarded £600k National Lottery funding to improve charity impact!  

As Scotland partner in the UK-wide programme, Evaluation Support Scotland will continue to deliver events and produce resources to support the Scottish third sector with impact measurement. More information about the funding and the 2018-21 Inspiring Impact programme can be found on the Inspiring Impact blog.
