Economic evaluation in the social sector: Is there value in putting a price on everything?

What is the difference between traditional measures of a charity’s impact and looking at it through an economic lens? When is it useful to do so? Is it right for your organisation? In this session Pro Bono Economics will talk you through their framework for measuring the economic impact of charities, and highlight some of the key things they have learned in 11 years of supporting social sector organisations to do it in practice. They’ll also provide some thoughts on how the approach could evolve in the years ahead.

How to do impact reporting for small organisations

Developing an impact report for the first time can feel like a daunting and time-consuming project, especially for a smaller organisation with limited comms capacity. With a bit of guidance and a useful template, this session will give small charities a jump-start by creating a bite-sized one or two-page impact report that can be easily updated and adapted to fit a website, social media, or funder report. They may even find this is all they need to get their message out to the public and key stakeholders!
