Impact & Learning Report 2022-2023

Our Impact & Learning Report sets out the ways we intend to monitor our impact.
ImpactMeans the changes to the world we expect to see because of an investment. This could be numbers of people helped, the amount of change or the creation of things that make the world better. This is not exclusive to investment or finance.

We know that impact is not exclusively defined by positive change  so this report takes into account our learning and highlights the positive impacts we continue to work towards. Namely our success in embedding participation.
