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 at firstname.lastname@example.org, who can outline possible options and discuss an approach that fits your needs.
Noise Solution is a UK social enterprise that pairs marginalised young people with professional musicians, building confidence, self-belief and aspirations in them by delivering one-to-one tutoring at home, enabling them to create and share music that is authentic to them. TSIC was commissioned via Cabinet Office’s Impact Readiness Fund to evalue Noise Solution’s programme impact. Over the course of 2016, TSIC has worked to design Noise Solution’s Theory of change and its impact measurement framework. TSIC has designed the data collection tools and worked with a tech provider to integrate the framework into a cloud-based system. As young people share music, videos and texts through password-protected Tumblr blogs, TSIC analysed the blog posts through a CAT (Content Analysis Tool). Finally, TSIC produced an external report to evidence their impact and an internal report to capture learning and strategic recommendations.
