Impact Reports

Achieving improved quality of life is about successful outcomes and impacts – the changes or benefits that result from what a charity or project provides.

It means really making a difference.

It is not just about the number of lives touched or training and mentoring sessions delivered, but the effect  a project has on people’s lives.

Impact, or more properly social impact, is how the work to improve the outcomes for beneficiaries translates into positive changes for our communities and society in general.
