Our Impact Changing the landscape of Bath since 1174

Impact Report

St John’s is committed to sharing best practice and evidencing the impact we, as an organisation, are having.

Our delivery is measured against key social issues identified in our strategic plan and to ensure our impact is effectively captured, we constantly evaluate and monitor all our projects.

All our funding recipients are asked to complete a survey and organisations that receive funding, will be asked to provide us with case studies demonstrating the impact our support has had:
