How we measure our impact
Our commitment to helping vulnerable women transform their lives is backed by robust impact measurement. Our bespoke database logs women’s immediate and long-term needs, take up of services, the sorts of interventions they require and actions taken. Most recently, our impact was recognized when we were awarded the level one quality mark from PQASSO – widely recognised as the standard of having a comprehensive framework for running an effective organisation. Our previous awards include:
An MBE for our CEO for her services to vulnerable women 2015
‘South West Impact Award’ from the Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales 2015
Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2014
‘Best Communicator’ at the South West Impact Awards 2014
