Plan your initiative for impact

The Western Australian Community Impact Hub supports organisations to have a positive impact in their community. Lotterywest and Healthway exist to build a better and healthier Western Australia through our grant programs. The Community Impact Hub is a central source of data, knowledge, and insights, and is also a great free resource for organisations delivering community projects, enabling users to understand their community, learn from others and plan their projects using its suite of free tools. We recommend that our grant customers apply the Hub’s Impact Planner tools to designing impactful projects for grant application. You can even provide your Theory of Change, Logic Model and Evaluation Plan as supporting material. Here’s how to get started.

Understand your community

Understanding how our community is going will help you to better target and plan your project. We provide a range of tools and resources in the Community Impact Hub to help you access community specific data for your area. Find them here.

Understand your impact

Lotterywest has two guides that aim to help you to understand the impact of your initiative: a complete guide and a companion quick guide. Both guides provide information about: Lotterywest expectations for evidence; How to measure the impact of your initiative and identify it has made a difference, and; how to report on your initiative to Lotterywest.
