Outcome Imps: Using evidence to improve outcomes

Finding & using evidence

Find the right evidence to improve what you do, and develop effective ways to get your message out to the people that matter


There are thousands of pieces of evidence.  Some can be jargon-heavy and even contradictory.  Outcome Imps can help you find and interpret the evidence most relevant to your needs.  We can capacity build with teams, or provide short digestible summaries of what you need to know from the evidence.  


Increasingly funders want proof that services are based on strong evidence of what will work.  We can help you communicate the evidence about your approach effectively by identifying and matching key stakeholders to relevant messages, and developing engagement strategies for specific client groups.

Our services at a glance:

  • Capacity building in sourcing and using evidence
  • Briefing papers on effectiveness of your approach for different stakeholders including policy makers, service commissioners, other providers and clients
