Our impact Why we measure impact Why we measure impact YSS has been making it happen since 1986 YSS measures impact to: Know what has changed as a result of our involvement and to understand the extent and intensity of the change Be able to benchmark and make comparisons Understand what works and what doesn’t work - learn and make improvements Test assumptions Evidence of value for money Be accountable We have developed bespoke management information systems to help us to effectively capture the work taking place and the impact it has, to show the difference we are making to people’s lives. We are able to produce comprehensive reports that not only give reassurance to those who fund our work around the quality and impact of the work delivered, but allow us to continuously improve and develop our services in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for those we support. Feedback from those we work with is vital in this process. This is obtained in a number of ways – both formally and informally - and used to drive improvements in services.
