Producing an impact report is an important part of measuring the impact of your work. Yet many charities struggle with what information to include in their reports, what to leave out, and how best to present their impact data.

This meeting will cover topics including:

  • What is impact reporting
  • Why charities should report on their impact
  • How to produce a good impact report

It will also outline why it is important to effectively communicate to your board of trustees so that they can make informed decisions.

This is a free members only event.
