Event description
A short workshop to understand Outcomes measurement for community projects & specifically for Parramatta Council Annual Grant applications.

About this event

Workshop aims:

  • To increase understanding of how to identify Outcomes and Outcomes measurement metrics for community-based projects;
  • To improve the quality of grant applications for the City of Parramatta Council's Annual Community Capacity Building and Social Enterprise Grants;
  • To improve effectiveness in measuring and achieving the desired change in project participants/community and contribution to longer-term impact on community issues and opportunities.

This short workshop is being delivered by Council's Community Capacity Buidling Team for community workers, volunteers, and social entrepreneurs who are keen to improve their understanding of Outcomes in the Results-Based Project Management framework and for Council's Annual Community Capacity Building and Social Enterprise Grants applications. This year's Annual Grants round opens 31 January, 2022.

The workshop will cover:

- the differences between activities, outputs, outcomes and impact;

- how to identify these for various example projects; and

- how to articulate useful Outcomes measurement statements and metrics in order to evaluate the effectiveness of projects.

You will have the opportunity to discuss and receive feedback on your project/program ideas and appropriate Outcomes for these - so you are encouraged to bring your project ideas and drafts to the workshop.

Two workshop dates are available - please only register for one. See below for further details.

Places are limited, and please ONLY register if you are able to commit to attending. Only two people per service can register - please ensure you communicate with your colleagues prior to registering. You can register for up to two people at the same time. The second workshop is planned for in-person, COVID-19 restrictions permitting, with COVID Safe Protocols applied. This workshop will be switched to delivery online if restrictions require cancellation of in-person events at the time, so participants should be prepared to attend in this format if required.

For online workshops: Participants are expected, at a minimum, to have their computer cameras turned on when participating in group discussions and activities.
