Trust Impact

We help organisations better understand, measure and maximise their social impact.

It has never been more important for organisations to explore, align, amplify and communicate the positive impact they’re making. We support charities, social enterprises and funders to find pragmatic, high-quality and straightforward ways to measure and report their impact, building trust with beneficiaries and linking impact to purpose.

Making sure that your efforts are focused. Contributing to sharper decision-making. Improving outcomes. Making messaging more consistent. Communications more compelling. Building reach and reputation. Amplifying your social impacts.

Our vision is to change the way organisations talk about the impact they make by leading a transparency revolution, powered by technology, high-quality strategic advice, and a pragmatic approach, never forgetting that we are here to create social value and change the world. We use real-time data visualisation and formative evaluation to promote learning, allowing organisations to understand when they are successful and most importantly when they are unsuccessful. We think impact measurement needs to be a creative process that evolves over time.

We believe in…

  • Putting impact first – strategy IS impact, so we start by helping you align on your core purpose, then how you can measure what matters instead of everything. Being transparent about your impact is key to gaining trust from beneficiaries, stakeholders and funders
  • Keeping it simple – complex does not need to be complicated. In fact, simple is often harder than complex, so we work with you to develop pragmatic, concise and proportionate solutions that are easy for you and your teams to understand
  • Being creative – we ask your permission to try new things based on your specific needs, then visualise your data beautifully to tell your story in a way that is meaningful for you
