Identify the key outcomes and impacts that you are working towards, and assess how effective your work is in achieving them.

Making a difference

Your social purpose projects and programs are about making a positive difference for the community. It’s not always easy, though, to define exactly what results you are after. We will guide you through the process of impact measurement: clarifying the set of outcomes that matter in your work, designing your data collection, and reporting on your results.

Shared understanding

Our collaborative impact measurement process brings your key stakeholders together to discuss common goals and to identify key outcomes and impacts. We will help you to document these through a program logic, theory of change, or outcome measurement framework. The shared understanding and commitment which are built though the process of discussion are as valuable as the documents produced.

Collect the right data

What data will you need to measure the effects of your work? We will help you to create a practical set of indicators and data collection tools to track outcomes and refine your work.

Communicate the results

Outcomes data is not useful unless it's communicated. We help you to prepare impact reports that demonstrate to stakeholders the value of your work, and that pinpoint the areas where further improvement is needed.

Our experience

Since 2010 Lirata's consulting team have been supporting social purpose organisations to develop and use impact measurement processes. Our consultants have completed impact evaluations of many education, health and community sector programs. We have led the development of sector-wide outcome measurement approaches in the homelessness and legal assistance sectors.
