  • Improved evidence of the difference you are making
  • Support with re-focusing your work due to lockdown, or
  • Someone to help you seek practical suggestions of solutions

Impact in Action offers you

1-2-1 support

  • One-off or a more ongoing mentoring style approach, this support is tailored to the problems you want to solve. 


  • Here are some Impact Resources which are being added to regularly.
  • Impact in Action's Useful Links page has lots of great places to look for even more resources.  
  • (Don't forget BVSC also has a Resources page with other resources on too!)


  • 7 Impact Sessions run by the Impact Officer. These are great for beginners or those wanting to brush up on everything they need to improve what they do and be funder ready. 
  • Micro training done during the networks or forum can be repeated for groups, or check out the slides at the bottom of the Impact Resources page. 
  • We're also booking training from other providers. This is a great opportunity for Bexley borough groups to access training for FREE!

AGM Speaker

For those who work with Karen on their impact, she is happy to come and speak at your AGM.


Karen, Impact OfficerYou may recognise Karen as she has been working in the borough for six years for a local charity that benefited from the previous Impact in Action groups that BVSC ran. Karen comes to BVSC with a 20 year background in the charity sector. This has mainly been in fundraising, but over the last 15 years this meant working for a range of charities that often needed help around measuring the difference they made. Karen is keen to hear from you, she says:

"I know how hard it can be in for voluntary and community groups, especially for small groups. Impact in Action offers a great range of support. Amazingly something that might normally cost your group hundreds, if not thousands of pounds, is free thanks to funding from the City of London Corporation’s charity, City Bridge Trust Even a relatively small amount of time invested in improving impact measurement can pay dividends in terms of people helped and funds raised. Do check out how I can help, I’m only a phone or email away!"




All of the above is covered in the Launch Leaflet and will be regularly highlighted in the BVSC newsletters. Sign up here to receive our bulletin or why not consider becoming a member here?


Thank you to the City of London Corporation’s charity, City Bridge Trust for their funding which allows BVSC to offer this programme for free to Bexley charities.
