Sign-up to the principles

Inspiring Impact has developed two sets of principles—for charities and funders—to identify what good impact practice looks like. The principles are complementary and have been developed through sector-wide consultation.

The Code of Good Impact Practice

Read the full Code here

1. Take responsibility for impact and encourage others to do so too
2. Focus on purpose
3. Involve others in your impact practice
4. Apply proportionate and appropriate methods and resources
5. Consider the full range of the difference you make
6. Be honest and open
7. Be willing to change and act on what you find
8. Actively share your impact plans, methods, findings and learning

 

Funders’ principles and drivers of good impact practice

Read the full principles and drivers here

Principles

1. Proportionality in relation to rigour and resources
2. Open mindedness, flexibility, adaptability and transparency
3. Acknowledgement of respective independent values
4. Recognition that everyone can contribute to impact, and also to impact practice.

Drivers

1. Seek clarity about the difference funders and the organisations they support want to make.
2. Support organisations in their impact practice, and resource the funder’s own impact practice.
3. Identify the difference made and assess how and why it was made.
4. Share and act on learning and seek to improve practice.
