Volunteer Opportunity! New Pro Bono Project with PKAVS


Project summary:
Project: PKAVS holds extensive details on activities and outputs, and is looking to fully embrace impact reporting. The organisation would like to move towards a logical model/Theory of Change based approach, to help plan impact evaluation, and provide a sound base to focus on future strategy development.
The exact work to be undertaken by the volunteer will depend on their initial discussions with PKAVS, but it is likely to include: -working with the Senior Management Team, Development Officer, and any other stakeholders they propose, to map out a logic model for each of the relevant services. -identifying any issues (disagreements on aims, gaps in evidence etc.) for PKAVS to take forward. -Identifying steps for outcome/impact measurement. This could include exploring possible data sources, agreeing suitable measures, developing a project plan, or taking the work further.
Time on site may be useful to talk through reports/findings/implications and access to data.
