Increase your social impact

As part of our Institute’s charitable mission, we offer tailored, independent, credible and evidence-based services helping social ventures from around the world to measure and improve their impact, develop outcomes frameworks and drive efficiency.  We use the Theory of Change and have structures to provide support at the highest standards locally, nationally and internationally. We are one of the approved Cabinet Office providers for the Impact Readiness Fund and we were originally involved in the structuring of the evidence London hub Project Oracle.

When supporting social ventures, we always try to match fund the costs while tapping into our existing research infrastructures including our international Academic Board and Research Ethics Committee, peer review journal and IARS Publications. IARS is a CPD accredited training provider and all our training sessions have been developed and are based on extensive research. IARS is an approved member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). This means that IARS reports, publications, evaluation and research strategies adhere to high ethical standards. Furthermore, we have several kitemarks , and monitor our own Theory of Change and strategic aims through internal and external evaluation processes.

We have a dedicated page with additional information and case studies that can be accessed here.
