Insight and Impact

This group was formed to support volunteer leaders who are interested in developing evidence and gain insights into their volunteering service's impact.

By building a community of practice we hope that the group will provide a platform for shared learning, new ideas and problem-solving and a source of support from like minded colleagues.

The group is set to “private” which means that the content of discussion forums can only be accessed by group members; however resources created by the group will be visible to all visitors to the website.

Demo of latest I&I Service

This video provides a 5-minute walkthrough / demo of the I&I Service as it stands March 2021. The product is still in development and we're making improvements through testing with a number of NHS Trusts* - my thanks again to them for their testing, feedback, and insights.

We're hoping to launch end of May. Any questions let me know via our forum (opens in a new tab).

* and if you'd like to be added to our list of testers please get in touch

Insight and Impact

Really looking forward to seeing how this service develops. I think the demand for volunteers is only going to increase due to Covid -19 and increasing need to work more closely with the Integrated Care Systems.

We have got to have the right resource to manage these growing numbers . Hence getting insight and impact measurements in place is vital to get the investment that is needed .

I&I Service - project update

Last month we shared news of an Insight & Impact service we are developing to help the NHS produce evidence of the impact that volunteer roles & services make to patients, staff, volunteers & NHS trusts.

This month we tested a first version of the product, with a mockup of the website for users coming to the service (see screenshot), and a prototype for part of the app that allows you to design your outcome model.

We hope to have the service live for a select number of trusts to use by April, and more widely available in May.

Our thanks to the the following trust volunteering leads who are kindly offering their help to test and develop the service:

  • Mandy (Sussex community)

  • Laura (Kingston)

  • Elizabeth (Plymouth)

  • Barry (Royal Marsden)

  • Antoinette (Barking)

  • Catherine (Bradford District Care)
