Inspiring Impact publications

Inspiring Impact produces case studies, reviews and other publications to support charities with embedding impact measurement into their practice. 

The Code of Good Impact Practice was produced by our Inspiring Impact partner, the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).  The Code is the product of consultation with stakeholders from across the non-profit sector and aims to provide clear, broad, and agreed guidelines of good impact.

Each principle includes a brief description of what ‘good’ looks like, an explanation of why it’s important, and ideas for how you could apply the principle in practice.  

You can find case studies of charities working the principles of the Code into their organisational practice in the follow-up publication Putting the Code into Practice


Are you leading for impact? explores the benefits – including how focusing on impact can help improve services, motivate frontline staff and reduce monitoring burdens – and weighs these against the costs of impact measurement.  


Funders’ principles and drivers of impact practice aims to provide a starting point for discussions and offer a framework for funders to consider their impact practice, upon which a bespoke approach can be built or developed further. Funders have a critical role to play in shaping behaviour around impact practice. Their approach and support strongly influences practice among their grantees and investees.

This framework is designed to encourage good impact practice and to offer practical and useful guidance for funders, and to help funders promote good impact practice amongst the organisations and people they support.


The Inspiring Impact publications page is updated regularly with new material, so why not have a browse?
