At TSIC, we believe that an effective approach to impact assessment should continuously inform decision makers and help shape the programme. Therefore, we always work with our clients to design, implement and manage an ongoing impact assessment process rather than focus on producing one-off reports.
Our approach balances academic rigour with practicality. We collaborate with our clients to implement an impact assessment system that is reflective of the organisation’s goals, the scale of its programmes and the capacity of its teams. We have delivered impact assessment projects for a diverse range of organisations, from a UK-focused youth programme to a global women’s organisation working in over 100 countries. In addition to developing impact assessment tools and reports, we also work with our clients to ensure that the results have resonance beyond the organisation, to inform funders, influence policy makers as well as attract media attention.
Please get in touch with Bonnie Chiu, who can outline possible options and discuss an approach that fits your needs.
We tailor our services to suit you. We can deliver a bespoke consultancy offering, or one-off workshops. Our team is well-versed in both qualitative and quantitative research methods, and all of our projects are designed with mixed-method approaches. We also use various tech tools and impact measurement systems (e.g. Salesforce) to ensure the cost-effectiveness of our research.

The report is published in the form of 5 webpages as part of their website.

The work we have done with TSIC has had an enormously positive impact on our ability demonstrate our impact. The professional manner in which they took complicated processes and evidence capture, turning it into data that we could use to demonstrate to commissioners our statistically significant impact, has been a cornerstone of our marketing and given us as an organisation a more sophisticated and nuanced insight of our work. The process was smooth and one I am very keen to repeat.Simon GlenisterDirector, Noise Solution
The KellyDeli Foundation is a grant making foundation whose aim is to tackle food poverty through supporting entrepreneurial ideas. One of its projects, The Good Kitchen, is an accelerator for social enterprises tackling food poverty. Selected organisations receive investment, business training and mentorship to help their organisation develop and create even greater social impact.
TSIC was commissioned by the KellyDeli Foundation to deliver impact consultations with five selected ventures from the UK, Turkey and Colombia, a full-day of Impact Measurement training in relation to investment readiness tailored to the venture needs, and follow-up activities.
There are few organisations that have such a deep understanding of social impact measurement. Through our Good Kitchen programme, Bonnie and her team engagingly and meticulously guided five social businesses through how to measure the difference they were making and why it was important. With a heap of relevant case studies, well-prepared workshops and follow-on activities, its fair to say that it fundamentally changed how we thought about and conducted social impact measurement.Joseph Gridley CEO, KellyDeli Foundation
