Measuring the change that we effect has been a challenge for the community sector.
Liz Weaver, who is presenting Community Research’s first webinar, Collective Impact: Getting to Shared Measurement, on 18 February, has co-produced the paper Approaches to Measuring: Community Change Indicators.
Produced with Paul Born and Denise L. Whaley, this paper is a consolidation of the research and content of four papers, previously published by Tamarack – An Institute for Community Engagement. Those papers focused on measuring less poverty in communities, more vibrant communities, more collaboration and more citizen engagement.
This paper covers the following sections:
- Approaches to measuring: Community Change Indicators
- Less Poverty in Communities
- More Vibrant Communities
- More Community Engagement
- More Collaboration in Communities
The sections discuss possible indicators of outcomes for each measure and provide comprehensive further reading.
