    Does our money make a difference? is a question that trusts, foundations and commissioners ask themselves.

We will help you think through the type of information you need to collect and why, and methods and approaches for assessing outcomes and impact. We will explore good practice principles in monitoring and evaluation, and how you might support grantees to better evidence the effects of their work and make a bigger difference with your money. This is a discursive and interactive course where you will join other funders to share and extend your knowledge, skills and confidence in outcome and impact assessment.
