We are a trusted partner of the public sector.

With over 40 years’ experience, we understand the policy drivers and operating challenges facing the sector. We can support the public sector through:

Fund Management and Design

Impact Funding Partners don’t just manage funds, we design and build whole system solutions, based on what people tell us they want. We use our experience and commitment to innovation to co-create new funding models which deliver real change, working with public and corporate sector clients, as well as individual donors. Telling your story is equally important, and forms a vital part of the theory of change process. We help clients articulate compelling stories around the difference their work makes to the lives of vulnerable people and the communities in which they live.

Strategic Advice

With 40 years’ experience and an unparalleled network, we’re able to bring market intelligence and current industry knowledge to organisations developing their approach to promoting social change, equality and human rights. This includes advising statutory, third sector and corporate clients to advance their strategic thinking. Our experience in helping organisations build sustainable futures, means means Impact Funding Partners is ideally placed to help clients to review their governance structure, meet procurement demands or to facilitate the development of their fundraising, marketing and systems change strategies. It can also resource the implementation of their plans.

Social Impact and Evaluation

Knowing you’ve made a difference isn’t enough, quantifying what impact looks like is difficult. By building systems that capture information that matters, we’re able to create evaluation tools that definitively - and credibly - measure social impact and identify areas for improvement. We can come alongside you at any stage in your project journey as a learning, monitoring and evaluation partner.

“Glasgow City Council appointed Impact Funding Partners to administer and manage our new Children’s Holiday Food Programme in May 2018. In a short timescale, to ensure the fund was operational for summer holidays, they adeptly set-up the programme including developing application, assessment and monitoring procedures and worked with a wide range of organisations who wanted to participate. Thanks to their hard work the first iteration of the programme proved hugely successful supporting more than 14,600 children in a number of ways, not just through providing food. They also produced a comprehensive and insightful evaluation report with lessons learned and practical recommendations to help us improve and expand the programme in the future.”
