About our impacts


Voluntary services today must be very clear about what they are trying to achieve and they need to develop very specific aims and objectives along with strategic plans and targets.

WALK has launched its Strategic Plan for 2015 - 2017 and alongside it has developed a monitoring and evaluation tool to measure progress. We will regularly report on progress of this Plan and will use this area to show the impacts we are making.
