BYP Group is the Social Impact Evaluation Partner for Creative Victoria’s Social Impact, Diversity and Inclusion Programs, 2018-2020. Over the next two years, we will be working with a range of arts, cultural and community organisations to develop their capacity to evaluate their social impact.
As part of this work, we will be creating and sharing on this website a range of tools, templates and resources for anyone wanting to monitoring and evaluate their social impact. We encourage you to review, adapt and share these resources, and your insights about what works.
