Measuring Social Impact Workshop for Social Enterprises in Cork
The Atlantic Social Lab project held a Measuring Social Impact Workshop for Social Enterprises in the Lifetime Lab in Cork on the 29th May 2019.
This half-day workshop introduced participants to Impact Measurement for Social Enterprises. It focused on exercises to explore the key concepts, definitions and tools to support social enterprises with measuring the outcomes of their work.
The workshop illustrated how organisations can effectively measure the impact and outcomes of their work. Participants worked through various exercises aimed to help with developing an impact measurement approach and gained an understanding of how it can be applied to the work of social enterprises.
The event was facilitated by Philip Isard from Quality Matters which is a social research charity that works with social enterprises, non-profits and charities.
This event drew participation from over 20 social enterprises and related organisations with attendees gaining an understanding of the difference between inputs, outputs and outcomes, clarity on indicators and outcome measurement tools and increased knowledge of methods and approaches to gathering outcome data and mapping outcomes, such as Logic Model and Theory of Change.
