Event description – Are you part of an organisation interested in improving the way the results and outcomes of social programs are measured and used? Do you want to better understand where to access, and how to use social and demographic data to more effectively plan and monitor services, strategy and advocacy? Then this workshop is for you!
The ACT Council of Social Service (ACTCOSS) is presenting a SIMNA ACT interactive event on the use of impact measurement and accountability. This session will consider:
- Why outcomes measurement matters and how information about impact is critical for accountability to the beneficiaries of programs, funders and the wider community
- Why, despite a long-standing desire to do it better, community sector organisations and government agencies struggle to make real advances in demonstrating their impact
- Practical steps participating organisations could take
- The case for a more system-wide approach and greater collaboration between government, community agencies and communities in defining the outcomes programs are directed to and measuring their impact.
The session will be facilitated by Lyla Rogan, a local consultant who brings Australian and international experience in developing program logic and performance frameworks and strengthening accountability to beneficiaries for program design and results.
