  • Designing impactful projects and writing effective grants with the Community Impact Planner

    The introduction of the Community Investment Framework in mid-2018 marked Lotterywest’s shift away from pure resource, infrastructure, and activity-based grant-making, towards grant-making for impact. This outcomes-based approach puts greater emphasis on identifying and evidencing the specific, measurable, long-term positive changes that an initiative will have.


    A well-developed design and outcomes-measurement framework can provide the foundation for impactful initiatives, and good grant applications.


    The Community Impact Hub is a freely available resource designed to support all organisations working towards positive social impact. This webinar will share practical tips on how to use the Community Impact Planner tools to articulate impactful initiatives and shape your Lotterywest grant application.


    Join Melanie Bainbridge, Senior Manager Knowledge & Insights, to learn more about outcomes-based grant-making, and how to write grant applications with a focus on outcomes and impact.


    This session will be based around the Lotterywest grant programs, however the information is relevant to anyone developing an initiative for impact or applying for funds to other grant-makers or funding bodies.
