Demonstrating our impact
One of our values is ‘impact’ – we want to measure what we do by the difference we make. The L&Q Foundation wants to make sure we're having the right impact. So, we're collecting evidence through our monitoring and evaluation framework.
We measure our impact, so we can see the effectiveness of our projects, whether they demonstrate value for money and to hold us accountable. It also helps us to understand what works well so we can use evidence to plan future projects.
We're using the Housing Associations' Charitable Trust's (HACT) Wellbeing Valuation Approach to calculate the social return on investment. Last year, for every £1 invested in our activities, we generated £3 in social value.
