I was back in London on Thursday to attend the NCVO Value of Infrastructure Programme Evidencing Impact course. The Value of Infrastructure Programme (VIP) has developed a set of tools to help voluntary sector infrastructure organisations (including umbrella bodies, membership organisations and support networks) to measure the impact of their work. As well as providing a standardised approach to describe the activities and impacts of infrastructure bodies, VIP will provide opportunities for infrastructure bodies to benchmark their performance against aggregate scores for the sector as a whole. The Evidencing Impact course introduced us to the tools and enabled us to think through how we might apply them to our own organisations. A further course, in May, will provide training on the online versions of the tools. The VIP tools look fantastic and I could immediately see how they will be useful in helping Voluntary Arts to measure impact in relation to the objectives of our new 3-year Strategic Plan.
