What you need to READ: Contribution vs. Attribution: A Reflection on the Impact of Intermediaries
. As the social impact space becomes increasingly competitive, more intermediaries are inevitably popping up to take advantage of this new market opportunity. And we welcome this. Competition will increase the choice for motivated organisations that are looking for guidance and support on their impact journey and, in time (we hope), lead to a higher standard of service and innovation. As this happens, it is important that intermediaries are honest about the true impact of their work and how they communicate it to the market.
