With our focus being on social change, we’ve been experimenting with how we can evidence the impact of our work for a few years and never felt we got it quite right… Then we had an idea – why don’t we use stories?
That might have seemed liked the obvious solution for an organisation that specialises in using lived experience storytelling as a change-making tool, but it took us a few attempts at trying to measure our impact using other approaches to reach this conclusion. Anyway, we decided we’d pilot using reflective storytelling as an impact measurement tool between April 2020 and March 2021… and what a year did we pick to do this!
Although, we have been refining our approach to measuring impact even more this year (April 2021 – March 2022) – still focused on stories but with a keener eye on what isn’t working – we are happy to share last year’s write-up with you now.
So here it is… our first social impact report. Let us know what you think!
