  July member profile: Charlotte Glass, Social Colours, United Kingdom

After eleven years in public sector performance management, Charlotte is establishing Social Colours, a not-for-profit social enterprise raising social impact awareness in Suffolk, UK. Social Colours provides advice, support, research and social impact services to social enterprises and charities in the region. 

She wants to help fellow public sector spin-outs and social entrepreneurs demonstrate and communicate their social value. The social impact assessment methods she uses include Social Return on Investment, impact and stakeholder mapping, public consultations and qualitative surveys. 

Charlotte is keen to collaborate and share common service area outcomes, create maps of impact to raise social impact measurement awareness, prevent duplication and instill best practice in the third sector. She believes that social impact evaluation doesn't need to be difficult, competitive or disjointed. Sharing knowledge is key to overcoming these hurdles.
