The central theme of this guide is about putting effectiveness at the centre of service design – not just as an after-thought.
Effectiveness in our community services context is largely about showing that you improved the lives of your clients. This guide puts a focus on being able to show funders that you are effective and therefore worth funding.
It offers tools and thoughts about relationships with your funders, how to demonstrate that your service is effective, how to show that you deliver value for money and, how you can use this evidence as a marketing tool to build a stronger case for funding.
