Who is this resource for?

In consultation with the sector, NDS has created a set of tools and methods that enable human service organisations to measure progress against outcomes and social impact. We call this the Social Impact Measurement Tool (SIMT).

Further information:

Across seven life domains the SIMT uses 21 key measures to determine the social impact of your organisation. This robust system helps you to understand and communicate the social or economic value that your organisation creates.

SIMT is suitable for use in all human service environments and includes a range of tools and supporting information.

You can read more about how SIMT was created and the experience of the trial organisations in the report
