Tools and resources

About our tools and resources

We have a wide range of tools and resources available on our website to help you plan your work. These include interactive tools, informative guides and downloadable resources to help you to get started.

If you are Planning for monitoring and evaluation or want help with Outcomes and outcome indicators we have dedicated pages that provide essential support. These include resources for commissioning external evaluations, planning IT, as well as information that can help you to identify and monitor the outcomes that you want to achieve. Our tools and resources for Evaluation methods include information on evaluation methods to help you to consider alternate approaches, such as SROI and developing your own Theory of Change.

Our pages for Quality management resources will help you with different approaches to quality, and include information on organisational health checks.

For funders we have a tailored and focused guide – Does your money make a difference?

To help you to understand the language used in planning, monitoring, evaluation, project management and performance improvement we have a section on terms and definitions.
