How to tell the story of your impact - Online Event

Primary tabs

6 December 2022 -
10:00am to 11:30am

Funders are often interested in numbers, but voluntary and community organisations feel that this is only part of their story.

This free, interactive workshop is designed for voluntary and community organisations that want to use qualitative evidence to share their story in a compelling and robust way. 

The session will cover: 

  • When qualitative data works best
  • How to use the most appropriate tools for the job – from interviews and focus groups to observation, journals, games and activities
  • How to record, sort and analyse your data
  • Ethics and privacy 
  • Sharing your story in a way that is hard to ignore

This workshop will be delivered by Janice and Brenda from Smith and Kent Consulting. Together, they have over 40 years’ experience helping voluntary and community organisations be heard. They will draw on their most recent experience supporting the Community Foundation NI and their grantees make the case for their impact by blending storytelling and statistics. 

NICVA will respond to demand and learning from this workshop and there will be an opportunity for a more detailed course, Story-telling Accelerator, providing a step by step guide in 2023.  Please let the facilitators know on the day if you would be interested in this option.
