Effectively demonstrating your impact to key stakeholders and the wider public is essential to secure ongoing support for your work. For many small charities, simple forms of impact measurement and well-known tools like Excel are the most appropriate ways to collect and analyse data – but with limited time to spend thinking about how Excel can work for you, it can be daunting to try and improve existing systems or implement new ones.
