CAVEAT is an easy to use toolkit to help you describe, measure and report key information about your organisation. It will help you to identify the difference you make to the lives of older people using your service; to your volunteers; and in your community. This is your impact. Information on impact is required when you apply for funding or when you want to demonstrate quality improvement.
The CAVEAT outcomes model is the main part of the toolkit.
It is made up of a ‘menu’ of outcomes. By selecting the outcomes that apply to the types of services you deliver will enable you to create a unique outcomes framework for your organisation. The toolkit also includes hints and tips and examples of the kind of data collection methods you can use to demonstrate impact. These include case studies, testimonials, surveys, and audit data, for example.
We have linked each outcome in the outcomes model to a carefully chosen range of tools or instruments which you could use to collect data to demonstrate achievement of the outcomes specified in your framework.
