Eastside Primetimers is pleased to have been selected as an Impact Management Provider for the Access Impact Management Programme, the Growth strand of which is just getting underway. This role builds on our track record of delivering some 40 impact projects this year, including as part of the Big Potential programme and with clients ranging from specialist local charities and foundations to regional and national charities. It means that we are now available to support social ventures seeking funding from the Impact Management Programme Growth strand to improve their impact management systems and processes.
Finding the right technology solution can often be an important part of effective impact management. With this in mind, Eastside Primetimers has partnered with Economic Change CIC, specialists in using Salesforce for impact measurement and management. We know that some ventures already use systems such as Salesforce as part of their customer relationship management, but without optimising its capabilities for impact management purposes. By partnering we can offer a joint impact and system proposition.
Applications for grants in the pilot phase of the £1.8 million Growth strand opened on February 10th. The pilot phase will award up to 10 grants by May 2017, with the full grant application window open from September 2017.
Before applying for a grant, eligible organisations are required to attend a training session delivered by Access partners Impetus-PEF. If you’ve attended an impact management training session, you have until 10 April 2017 to make a grant application.
