Impact

We are committed for as long as it takes, whatever it takes.

Together, we are effective.

We record and measure our effectiveness and rigorously evaluate the work we do. We crunch the numbers and track our progress to continuously improve because it is critical that we maximise our impact. But we know that the real story of our impact lies behind the numbers in the stories of the people and communities we work with.

25,000+

young people into employment, education or training.

30,000+

children accessed free play opportunities.

15,000

local people building better communities.

100,000s

of lives transformed.

We change lives for the better.

We want a Scotland without poverty or disadvantage. That means tackling long-term, entrenched social problems faced by Scotland’s people and communities. We work with experts from all sectors to design, and continuously develop, solutions to these problems. We take a long-term view and we are committed for as long as it takes. We look at policies and challenge thinking. We research and evaluate and learn.

Together, we succeed when the people and communities we work with can live happy and healthy lives free from poverty and disadvantage.
