Charting the waters (2017)

Last Updated: Wednesday 9 August 2017

This guide is for people in third sector organisations that want to understand and evaluate the difference their policy influencing work makes.

In a nutshell, this guide aims to help:

Third sector, funders and policy-makers have a better understanding of how to evaluate policy-influence.

This in turn will lead to:

More effective policy influence and better reporting about policy influence by third sector, and ultimately,
better outcomes for people and communities.

After an introduction, the guide is split into two parts:

Part 1: Understanding your policy influence

Part 2: How to measure and evidence your policy influence outcomes.
