Inspiring Impact

CDHN is delighted to be the new lead for Inspiring Impact in Northern Ireland. Inspiring Impact supports people who work and volunteer for charities and social enterprises across the UK. The programme provides peer learning networks and online resources so that the community and voluntary sector can improve its impact measurement and learn from others.

CDHN worked with Community Evaluation Northern Ireland (CENI), the previous lead for Inspiring Impact NI, on several programmes and projects and we’re very keen to build on the excellent work CENI established and bring added value to Inspiring Impact across Northern Ireland.

CDHN was a champion organisation as part of Phases one and two of Inspiring Impact in Northern Ireland (IINI) and we remain committed to excellent impact practice. The landscape has changed significantly over the last decade in terms of how we understand and articulate the difference we make as individual organisations and a collective sector. The language has changed, the tools have improved and the opportunities now exist to skill up and demonstrate the difference we all make.

We have a wide network of members and long-established connections and are totally committed to the programme priorities, we see these as adding real value to the work of our organisation.   Over the coming months we will be showcasing good impact practice guides and resources in our newsletter and social media.  We will also be adding resources to CDHN website and the portal.  In the new year, we will be offering impact training.

About Inspiring Impact

The Inspiring Impact programme was founded in 2012 to make good impact practice the norm across the voluntary sector. The programme offers free online resources, self-assessment tools and peer learning networks to voluntary and community organisations across the UK. Last year over 16,000 used the Inspiring Impact website and over 400 people attended peer learning events across the UK. This work is delivered by a coalition of six organisations: Community Development and Health Network, Evaluation Support Scotland, NCVO, NPC, Social Value UK and Wales Council for Voluntary Action.
