Achieving improved quality of life is about successful outcomes and impacts – the changes or benefits that result from what a charity or project provides.
It means really making a difference.
It is not just about the number of lives touched or training and mentoring sessions delivered, but the effect a project has on people’s lives.
Impact, or more properly social impact, is how the work to improve the outcomes for beneficiaries translates into positive changes for our communities and society in general.
Impact Report 2016

Impact Report 2015
Our 2015 Impact Report reflects grants awarded in 2014. During the year, CCF awarded just over £1.3 million in grants – of which just under £350,000 went towards IMPROVING LIVES and just over £1 million towards IMPROVING COMMUNITIES
