How can you tell whether your website is actually working?  Whether it is raising awareness of your cause, and attracting people who need your services or want to support you, or even people who want to fund you…

Inspiring Impact is an organisation which seeks to improve the impact of voluntary organisations’ websites, by sharing tools, and good practice.

They say:

Impact practice encompasses all the activities you do to focus on impact. It’s about learning how to best serve the people you support. This means planning what difference you want your programme or service to make; collecting the right information to know if you’re achieving your goals; assessing what impact you’re having; and learning from the results to improve your work.

Their website includes

  • self assessment tools – data collection and impact measurement
  • information about how to measure and assess your website
  • jargon buster
