Charities Evaluation Service have just published an overview of outcome frameworks available, as a free download. We like it – it’s useful background reading if you’re thinking about how to measure impact. The problem with this sort of thing – and I know CES know it – is keeping it up to date – New Philanthropy Capital have been doing some work on measuring impact on well-being of young people, and there’s work going on for infrastructure organisations there and at NCVO.
We hope NPC are going to make their ‘well-being’ work public and freely available – the background on the methodology looks to be some of the most rigorous we’ve seen. And I know that some of our customers working with young people could use it.
