Starting Out Part 2: Making an Impact

Voscur's Starting Out course is a step by step guide to starting up or developing your idea for social change whether you want to start a charity or social business. These sessions will look at your idea, or the work you have already started and focus on what exactly what you are trying to achieve the social benefit you want to create and who you want to be involved.


This course supports you to develop your idea for social change whether you are starting a charity or social business. This course takes you from the aim of social benefit to practical social impact, identifying the need for your activities and ensuring you are able to monitor and evaluate your impact.
