Impact Measurement

At Eastside Primetimers we understand that measuring and managing social impact is about much more than putting in new systems, frameworks and processes. It needs leadership, vision and clear communication.

More and more, not-for-profits are being challenged to evidence – and drive up – the impacts they achieve with their available resources.  This challenge looks set to increase as impact investment gathers pace and technology enables new approaches to measurement.

We are pleased to have supported a range of organisations to strengthen their social impact assessment, both as an approved provider for the Impact Readiness Fund and as an integral part of our work on investment readiness and organisational transformation under programmes such as Big Potential. We have been an approved provider on the Access Impact Management Programme, working with five grantee organisations. Our strong pool of senior business and charity professionals means we can draw on expertise covering all the different dimensions of social impact measurement, backed by strong knowledge of funder and sector-specific requirements.

What does our service include?

We can support you at any stage of your impact measurement journey. For example, we can help you to:

  • Develop a theory of change and prioritise what to measure
  • Design and implement a social impact measurement and reporting framework that works across multiple programmes
  • Supporting better use of financial information and finance skills in data interpretation to drive performance improvement
  • Manage the changes involved in embedding effective use of data
  • Tell your ‘social value’ story

How can we help you?

Mechanics’ Institution Trust“The support we received from Eastside Primetimers and Kevin Davey was incredibly valuable and enabled us to take a step back, be challenged, and review where we were as a heritage and community development organisation. In particular the decision support tool gave us the ability to test any set of financial variables we wanted. This created the chance for trustees to be empowered to discuss and debate different scenarios, then use the tool in real time. This process also showed us where we had upcoming weaknesses we needed to respond to by putting in place measures to build sustainability” Daniel Rose, Former Chair
Chilypep“Working with Eastside Primetimers and their consultant Helen Nott really helped us explore our idea. Developing the business case increased our understanding of our options, and a better grasp of social value and measuring it will help us to show our stakeholders the real impact of our work. Helen was flexible, great to work with and took time to really understand our needs and who we are. Her work to help us develop our branding and identity has been a real game changer” Lesley Pollard, Managing Director
Life Story Network“I want to say a big thank you to Eastside Primetimers consultant Lisa Lucas. She was really good at keeping us on track focused and organised.
