These are difficult, uncertain times for the Third Sector. In the past few days I have been inundated with calls from members concerned at the impact that the current political crisis will have on contractual and funding arrangements with the public sector.
Inspiring Impact is a UK-wide initiative to help Third Sector organisations improve how they measure the difference they make in the world. It is a timely initiative, as everyone seems to be talking about outcomes and impact at the moment. Even the Northern Ireland Executive has embraced the idea of measuring outcomes using Mark Friedman’s Outcomes Based Accountability (OBA).
