Inspiring Impact is on a mission to make good impact practice the norm by creating a culture of continuous improvement among voluntary organisations.


Inspiring Impact supports people who work and volunteer for charities, funders, and social enterprises across the UK. We provide free online resources, peer learning networks, and grant funding, so you can plan, understand, and improve your impact. 


It is a UK wide programme running from 2018 to 2021 with the support of the Big Lottery Fund.


As the Northern Ireland partners, we are focusing on three areas:


1. Collaborative learning for impact practitioners

Themed sessions and webinars where people responsible for implementing impact practice come together to share insight, gain practical skills and build a network of support.


2. Inspirational space for leaders

A series of short, safe space, sparky speaker events to stimulate the thinking juices of directors, trustees and other leaders to look above immediate pressures to the long-term impact horizon.


3. Shared resources

Linking local impact leaders and practitioners to the free tools and guidance on the Community Evaluation NI (CENI) and Inspiring Impact websites.


This project builds on the original Inspiring Impact NI programme supported by the Building Change Trust for five years to 2018.
