Charities are becoming increasingly sophisticated about how they gather evidence of impact - and there are many great guides and tools out there to help them do so. But there are other ways that the third sector can use evidence to increase its effectiveness and amplify its voice.
In this report, published with the Wales Centre for Public Policy, Emma Taylor-Collins presents case studies from seven UK charities which demonstrate the variety of ways that evidence can help - from getting off the ground, to improving practice, to influencing the external landscape.
With practical takeaways and tips, we hope that charities will be inspired to think about all the ways in which evidence can help them to do good.
