Mariana joined Community Southwark in July 2014 to lead on the City Bridge Trust funded evaluation and impact support programme, which has now been extended to Community Waltham Forest.
Being able to demonstrate the difference you make is key to success in building your organisation and being successful in fundraising. Mariana offers regular training as well as tailored support through free 121 advice sessions helping groups to develop a Theory of Change, create an outcomes frameworks, and revising programmes and systems based on evidence.
Mariana's role as Evaluation & Impact support officer is to assist voluntary and community groups to improve their evaluation practices through 1:1 in depth support and workshops covering a wide range of topics related to impact evaluation. She has been proving this type of services since 2014 and has seen over 100 voluntary organisations. Mariana provides tailored support which includes helping groups to develop a Theory of Change, create an outcomes frameworks, and revising programmes and systems based on evidence.
This is a free service which focuses on improving your organisation’s skills through 1:1 intensive support sessions and practical workshops to ‘demystify’ the world of evaluation and impact and enthuse your staff, trustees and users on the benefits of adopting a comprehensive outcomes framework.
Rather than defining the organisation's outcomes for you, we will work with you to enable you to outline what impact you want to achieve in the first place, and to communicate and enhance the collation, assessment and reporting of your outcomes across the whole organisation. It utilises the outcomes assessment approach to map the impact of all the organisations’ services.
Once an outcomes framework has been developed, a key part of the practical 1:1 support will be to support you to implement the outcomes framework throughout the organisation, so that it is fully used and ‘owned’ by all the staff.
