Impact of Evaluation in the Third Sector: TSRC event, London

5 Apr 2011 - 9:30am - 4:00pm

How does evaluation and impact measurement affect voluntary and community organisations and social enterprises? Does it benefit their users, increase their legitimacy or fundamentally change the way they work?

Organisations in the sector are under ever-increasing pressure to demonstrate the added value of their work, and there has been much debate about how they can do this. Yet measuring impact is not as simple as picking the right tool or method. In deciding how to identify, measure and value outcomes, competing goals must be negotiated.

This conference is a chance for participants to have an in-depth discussion about what evaluation means for the sector.

Participants will explore research ideas in the context of practical experience and political reality.

Some of the latest academic research on evaluation will be presented, with responses by leading practitioners in the field (see agenda below). The conference will be chaired by Andy Gregg, Chief Executive of Charities Evaluation Services (CES).

Three parallel sessions will be held in the morning and three in the afternoon. Participants will be able to select their preferences (please note that we need to ensure an equal mix of participants at each session, so may not be able to guarantee your first choice).

Attendance is £30* Book a place online now!!
