The Impact & Insight Toolkit is a project run by Counting What Counts. We work with our partners, Culture Counts and Arts Council England, to provide evaluation tools to ACE funded organisations. Find out more about us, our commitments and meet the team.
A full suite of support and best practice documents, training sessions, case studies and more.
The Impact & Insight Toolkit gives you the tools you need to evaluate your work in a way that begins and ends with your own organisation – helping you to better understand your own ambitions and your progress against them. By doing this, it enables you to learn how your work impacts the people who experience it, and ensures you have what you need to report to your funders.
Explore the Dimensions Framework! Choose questions which align with your ambitions to achieve data that will speak directly to your organisation.
The Impact & Insight Toolkit (Toolkit) has been created by Counting What Counts, in partnership with Arts Council England (ACE), to provide ACE-funded organisations with a shared approach to evaluation.
It’s free to use for ACE-funded organisations, such as: National Portfolio Organisations, Investment Principles Support Organisations, Creative People and Places and some museums within the Museum Development Network. If you’re not sure whether this applies to you, get in touch with us to discuss your eligibility.
For me the primary aim of the data, and of this programme in general, is not to benefit Arts Council internally…it is very much being developed for the benefit of the organisations involved…and helping them to inform their creative process
The Impact & Insight Toolkit comes with a full suite of support and best practice documents, training session and webinars. If you ever get stick and can’t find an answer, our helpful team is on hand to offer assistance.
