Do you know the difference you're making?

Aiming to create positive change for individuals and communities, social purpose organisations are also facing increasing financial uncertainty and a competitive environment. Now is the time to build the capacity and capability of your organisation and staff to better measure, understand, and report the difference you are making.

The Centre for Social Impact UWA’s workshops engage participants in an interactive learning environment where they can develop a better understanding of outcomes measurement and how to implement it in their organisation. A range of options are available, including 2-Day Workshops for Individuals and workshops for teams within organisations.

Why measure outcomes?

  • To understand the difference we make; the impact of our work
  • To improve the lives of the people we serve through more informed service delivery
  • To generate evidence that attracts and retains customers, investments and funding
