Local help to support smaller charities demonstrate impact

New research commissioned by local voluntary sector body NAVCA highlights difficulties smaller charities have when using data to demonstrate their value. The research from Think:Learn:Do also looked at how local sector support organisations (infrastructure) can provide support for this.

Public commissioners of services may find the lack of evidence a disincentive to work with smaller charities, potentially overlooking sources of value for money and the best outcomes.

The NAVCA news item includes a link to download the report ‘In sickness and in health: A Case Study on small VCS organisations, impact data, and the delivery of health service contracts’ (24 page pdf, 562KB). Note: It was published at the end of October, despite the title page saying March 2016.
