Exploring how shared measurement approaches are shaping services and improving impact, featuring Age UK Wakefield District, ASCOT, Citizens Advice, Home-Start UK, PCOC, SafeLives Insights and Outcomes Stars.

Shared measurement involves charities and social enterprises that work on similar issues, and towards similar goals, reaching a common understanding of what to measure in terms of the outcomes and impact of their work, and developing the systems to do so.

Three years on from the previous paper, ‘Blueprint for shared measurement’, this report identifies how shared measurement data is being used to drive change and improvement.

This data has been used in a variety of ways: operationally—to improve services—and strategically—to influence policy, fundraising and commissioning practice.
