NPC’s step-by-step guide to charity analysis outlines a tried and tested approach which focuses on the key characteristics common to all effective charities.

The analysis covers four key areas: purpose, impact practice, people, finance and operations. It asks why each is important and details what to look for in order to assess an organisation’s effectiveness.

It includes an assessment grid to summarise what ‘good’ looks like for each area, and a blank template so you can easily fill in your notes as you work through the guide.

This guide is essential reading for charity leaders, trustees, grant-makers, philanthropists and anyone interested in helping charities to become better.
