Impact Management Programme

What is the programme?

The Impact Management Programme aims to build the capacity of charities and social enterprises to manage their impact - helping them increase their social impact and diversify their income.

It's a two year programme and has been co-designed by social organisations to ensure it's user-friendly and reflects the sector’s needs.

New Philanthropy Capital (NPC) is leading the programme, working with a consortium of social sector organisations: Impetus-PEF, NCVO Charities Evaluation Services, Social Enterprise UK, Social Investment Business, Social Value UK and the Young Foundation, plus design studio Hactar.

Access – the Foundation for Social Investment has funded the programme as part of their capacity building work to support charities and social enterprises to be better able to take on a loan.

Who is it for?

The Impact for Growth strand of the programme is aimed at organisations who are actively seeking investment or contracts. The programme will offer ventures training and grant funding to help them develop impact management systems that meet the needs of investors and/or commissioners.

We expect to fund up to 50 grants and there is £1.8m of grant funding available. Grants can be up to £50,000 in size and can be spent over a 12 month period.

How do I apply?

In order to apply you will need to have attended an Impact Management training session.

The second (and final) round of the grant fund will be open to applications from Thursday 28 September 2017 until midday Monday 29 January 2018. We cannot consider any applications received after this time.
