Impact tools

How can you be sure you are making a difference?

What is impact measurement?

Impact measurement is evidencing the difference an activity is making, either for individuals or organisations. Most charities exist to bring about some form of change and therefore impact is the bottom line of whether they are successful.

In 2014/15 RNIB is aiming to continue to raise the profile of impact across the organisation, and to ensure impact evidence is part of our planning, communications and evaluation.
