The approach is designed to help organisations to assess, learn from and demonstrate the social impact of their work. It places intended beneficiaries’ voices at the centre of reporting, and demonstrates a genuine commitment to learning about what works and what doesn’t work. The QuIP reveals what your most important stakeholders really think is significant.
The QuIP’s starting point is the belief that, while important, quantitative change data is rarely a sufficient source of evidence of social impact; but we know that it can be difficult to access and apply good qualitative research methods within limited budgets. It can also be difficult to convince funders that qualitative research is rigorous and reliable enough. The QuIP has been developed to try to address all these issues, creating an innovative and trusted approach that has already gained recognition by leading donors and non-governmental organisations.
