Economic Impact

Impact is a key measure for understanding what effect we, as charities, have on wider society.

The Economic impact project provides organisations with the tools to understand how the services they create impact on individuals’ lives in the long-term. Demonstrate your value and learn how to influence decision makers

We offer bespoke consultancy packages to analyse your organisation’s output on specific projects or across your entire organisation, allowing you to attract more funding by displaying the impact you have through your interventions. This includes local economic benefit, cost-benefit analysis and Social Return on Investment.

For a free initial consultation and general advice on developing strategic documents such as a Theory of Change or measurement frameworks, please contact VAL at for a quotation.

If you are responsible for project planning, reporting on outcomes or demonstrating the social value of your organisation, then these sessions will help you plan your project effectively and become better at showcasing your organisation’s impact.

Economic Impact is funded by the European Social Fund.
