Understanding the Impact of our Work

Understanding the Impact of our Work

It is very important to us that we understand the impact of our work - the extent to which we are encouraging and supporting church-based social action, and the way in which these activities are transforming the lives of the poorest and most marginalised in this country. We want to learn from what we do so that we can continue to grow and develop as an organisation and as a network.

 

Together Network Impact Report

We have produced a report that gives a snapshot of the work undertaken by the Together Network between January 2013 and June 2014. It explains the type of activities being carried out and the impact of those activities. Bringing together an external evaluation done by the Charities Evaluation Services and our own internal monitoring, this report shows that the Network is supporting a significant number of churches and organisations, helping them to unlock financial, physical and human resources to tackle poverty and transform lives.

Charities Evaluation Services Impact Report

Church Urban Fund worked with Charities Evaluation Services (CES) between 2012 and 2014 to develop a monitoring and evaluation framework for our Together Network. This framework is based on our Theory of Change and helps us understand the impact we are having on churches and in local communities.  

In their latest report, CES wrote '‘Over the two years of this evaluation, the Together Network has grown and developed. CUF is now seen in a more dynamic and positive partnership with the dioceses. A greater engagement to mutual benefit has developed between CUF and the pilot joint ventures (partnerships), seen for example in conferences and events, research, fundraising and promotional activities."
