The Impact & Insight Toolkit launched last week across the United Kingdom, with 347 National Portfolio Organisations (NPOs) registered for phase one. The project’s collaborative opportunities will enable organisations to learn from each other and together enrich a shared understanding of the wide-ranging value of the work being made.
16 induction and training sessions have been run across Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, London and Newcastle, attended by over 300 people from these funded organisations. The Strategic Development Strand has already met six times and 136 NPOs have generously volunteered their time to refine and review core metrics, develop the peer review component and experiment with and share evaluations. The Portfolio’s rich knowledge base is helping to shape the Toolkit in a way that best serves the needs of a broad and diverse range of organisations.
As NPO users begin implementing the Toolkit, we will be offering support in a variety of ways, including periodically hosting webinars and releasing support documents. Any staff involved can find more information on our dedicated Twitter account, or on the Impact & Insight Toolkit webpage.
