Aleron is delighted to have been appointed an approved provider for the new two-year Impact Management Programme, funded by the Access Foundation and Power to Change. The Impact Management Programme aims to build the capacity of charities and social enterprises to manage their impact, with an ultimate view to helping them access social investment and/or build their commissioned income.
The programme combines training, grant-funding, peer support, expert advice and an online platform.

- Pathway – for organisations that are new to impact management
- Growth – for organisations with more developed impact practices, seeking investment/contracts
