Social Impact Measurement Tool

Measuring the social impact of your organisation helps you to understand and communicate the social or economic value that your activity creates. By doing this the stories of success can be backed up with facts that prove, and improve the value of your activities.

Thanks to the support of the NSW Department of Family and Community Services and in consultation with sector National Disability Services (NDS) is proud to present a method which enables disability service providers to measure outcomes and determine social impact. We call this the Social Impact Measurement Tool (SIMT).

Find out more about the SIMT on the NDS website.

You can read more about how SIMT was created and the experience of the trial organisations in the report [PDF 1807 KB] [WORD 2856 KB].
