Eliminate confusion

There’s no shortage of information on impact measurement and theory out there. But how do you know what to trust? And why do definitions and frameworks seem to conflict so much?

Learn the essentials

You don’t need to a PhD in research to do impact measurement. But with so much information out there, how do you know what are the basics everyone should know and what’s just necessary for specialists?

Become an impact leader

When you’re confident in the basics, you can show others how it’s done and start gaining a reputation for being the go-to person. Being able to demonstrate impact is a skill that will never go out of demand.

Hi, there. I’m Alexa.

I believe that most of what charities need to demonstrate their impact can be done in-house with the right support and guidance. 

I want to remove the false assumptions that good impact practice necessarily requires consultants or specialist staffing or expensive software.

I want to provide a way of learning about impact practice that is more sustainable than one-off training sessions or conference sessions.

Charity Sector Success provides DIY solutions that charities and non-profit workers can use to learn and implement good impact practice themselves. Most of this is done through the website and newsletter which provides free, easily-digestible resources on a monthly basis.

But for those who want to go a step further, there will be a range of products available to take you through the journey at your own pace.
