Data and Impact

Why it matters

If we don't measure the impact of our interventions we can keep making the same mistakes, and struggle to defend services against cuts to resources. Collecting and analysing data is important to help identify gaps, review performance, and understand what works in tackling domestic abuse.

What we do

We analyse quantitative and qualitative data gathered from our projects to highlight trends over time and assess our impact, using several methods:

  • Observations of practice
  • 'Dip' samples
  • Case file audits
  • Focus groups with survivors and stakeholders.

What we can do for you

Drawing on our wide experience in analysis and impact measurement we can support you to:

  • Calculate repeat victimisation levels and changes in attrition  
  • Assess service provision
  • Use insights from data to inform training
  • Track offenders through the court system
  • Use qualitative data to identify areas for improvement
  • Examine referrals for patterns in ethnicity, gender and location

Please contact us to find out how we can help you collect and analyse your data to better understand domestic abuse in your area and measure the difference you are making to end it.

“Rarely has NPC seen a charity that places data gathering and analysis so central to its agenda: it truly informs its own operations and those of its partners, and influences the wider sector including government. Standing Together turns data into action.”
