The Manor House PACT project aims to empower the community living in the Hackney and Haringey to live more sustainably and build resilience to the effects of climate change in an urban setting.

Project Objectives

MHDT commissioned CAN Invest to help measure the impact that the PACT project delivers for its stakeholders.

CAN Provided…

CAN Invest developed a bespoke impact measurement framework and data collection methodology to capture the impact PACT delivers over the three year programme, for its wide range of beneficiaries. In addition to this quantitative data collection, CAN Invest ran and trained volunteers to run focus groups and interviews to gather qualitative evidence.


MHDT identified 15 projects, for which CAN developed a suite of outcomes to be measured through engagement with the partners delivering those projects. An innovative high touch and low touch distinction was developed to guide data collection requirements for different types of project.
  • Example: Residents vulnerable to fuel poverty reduce their bills through adoption of greener behaviours

Through desk research and discussions with partners, indicators were developed to measure these outcomes and compare against benchmark data


CAN analysed the data collected from years 1-3 to measure the impact each activity was having in relation to particular outcomes

Manor House Development Trust now has…

A comprehensive impact report that demonstrates the impact the project had in quantitative and qualitative terms for each of the 15 projects and for the PACT programme as a whole.
As this was our third project to be completed with MHDT, we have gradually taken a more hands-off/capacity building approach, enabling us to embed capability for impact measurement for future projects in the organisation.Manor House Development Trust on working with CAN Invest
