Blue Flower

The Social Effectiveness Research Centre provides a mix of information and support services for non-profit making organisations, particularly voluntary or community projects and organisations that are doing good work but struggling to demonstrate their impact.  We provide both a general information library online as well as individual support in person where we feel the organisation potentially has ideas or learning that could benefit other organisations.
