Impact and Outcomes Matrix

Start to plan and measure your impact using the Outcomes Matrix.

What is the Outcomes Matrix?

The Outcomes Matrix is a free tool to help organisations plan and measure their social impact. It includes outcomes and measures for nine outcome areas and 15 beneficiary groups.

How does it work?

Browse and select relevant outcomes and measures from the nine outcome areas to create your own unique outcomes matrix. You can also select beneficiary groups to highlight suggested outcomes and measures which relate to that specific group. Your selected outcomes and measures can be exported to an excel file and then customised to meet your organisations individual needs.

Why should I use it?

It provides a useful starting point for you to consider the social impact that you are trying to deliver and how you will measure it.

How was it developed?

It was developed by Big Society Capital in partnership with social investment financial intermediaries, front line organisations and impact experts including the Good Analyst, New Philanthropy Capital, Social Value International and Triangle Consulting.
