Outcome frameworks are useful as they provide consistency in impact measurement, while standalone measures provide information on how much of an outcome has happened or is expected to happen.The National Lottery Community Fund has also published a guide to accompany the tool, providing information on the methodology used to compile the list, the rationale for inclusion of outcome frameworks and standalone measures, and an explanation of the data fields.Joe Ferns, Director of Knowledge and Learning at The National Lottery Community Fund, said:“Thanks to National Lottery players this new tool will help smaller charities and community groups easily find and use relevant outcome frameworks to measure their impact. By using the tool, and the frameworks and measures within it, civil society organisations can better understand how they help people and communities to thrive, and better share their insights with the wider sector.”  590 total views,  2 views today Free tool from National Lottery Community Fund helps charities measure impact  591 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis47 Melanie May | 30 July 2019 | Newslast_img read more
