Our impact

One of our core values is creating impact together. We are passionate about change and seek to ensure that positive results are meaningful, long-lasting and far reaching.

But we can only achieve this by connecting with motivated do-ers – our supporters, project partners, communities and volunteers. Everyone gets involved because they believe in young people and communities working together to create lasting change.

Here at Raleigh we like to celebrate the heroes who have created change:

Monitoring and evaluation

We measure the impact of our work to make sure we are achieving the best results for the communities we work with and our volunteers.

It’s important to us that we ensure our work is as effective as possible and has a real and positive impact on people involved. As part of that, we strive to implement a robust monitoring, evaluation and learning system to enhance accountability, learning and programme management. We aim to include all stakeholders at each stage of the process and share best practice with our partners.

Impact reports

In recent years we have produced reports evidencing the progress towards our strategic objectives.

External research

We are committed to making a sustained, positive impact. It’s important to us that we’re not just conducting internal reviews. We also work with external research professionals to make sure we keep perspective and continue the search for excellence:
