Inspiring Impact NI Information Roadshow

Planning for Impact Practice: Call for applications

Inspiring Impact has a long term strategy that aims to change the way that voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations and their funders think about impact and to put impact practice at the heart of their work by 2022. This support programme is part of that strategy in Northern Ireland.
This initial phase of the Inspiring Impact NI programme is focused on preparing the sector and its funders for impact practice. As a first step we are seeking applications from a range of VCSE support organisations to act as leaders for impact - we want them to provide direct support to their members or client groups so that they are better able to:

  •  understand the cycle of impact practice;
  •  assess their own impact practice;
  •  access information on impact tools and resources; and
  •  plan to apply impact practice

The Building Change Trust will provide the selected organisations with a Building Change Award of up to £15,000 to implement a programme of support for impact practice with their members/client groups using Inspiring Impact resources.
A call for applications will be opened on 3 June 2014 and organisations meeting the required eligibility criteria will be invited to submit applications by Friday 27 June 2014. 

Inspiring Impact NI is hosting a series of information sessions to provide more detail on the application process and selection criteria, and answer any questions.
