Why monitor and evaluate?

Collecting information and data on the impact of your activities and services is an important part of running your group or organisation.

What information and data you collect, analyse and share, requires careful thought and planning.

The information and data will help you to:

  • track the success of your activities and services – what works
  • identify areas which could be improved – what could work better
  • provide evidence of the change you’ve made to people’s lives – impact

This information is required by funders, but will also help you evaluate the effectiveness of your current activities and tell the story of what you do.
