Using Evidence to Drive Success is an Evidence Masterclass with the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA) and The Alliance for Useful Evidence. It is for senior leaders who want a better practical understanding of how to use evidence to boost their charity’s prospects.

The focus will be on learning from research evidence that is already out there from universities, independent research organisations, market researchers, or evaluations of other programmes.

We will also consider how to strengthen your internal evaluation processes, and conduct robust cost-benefit analysis. We will highlight how charities can incorporate all types of evidence more effectively, even with limited time and money and without specialist expertise. We’ll show how becoming a ‘knowledge-based organisation’ can directly impact on your charity's outcomes. Better use of evidence will help you secure contracts and funding; commission or redesign programmes and services; and develop effective communications and campaigns.

This session is for NICVA members and you can book your place below. As there are only 20 places for this training event, we would encourage registration as soon as possible with only one participant per organisation preferred.
