Shared measurement involves using common tools to track outcomes across similar organisations and settings. It is both a process to understand a sector’s shared outcomes and a tool that can be used by multiple organisations to track social impact.

Drug and Alcohol Task Forces (DATF) fund and run a number of services tackling various issues related to substance misuse. To date, many task forces have used logic models to understand their outcomes and have evaluated their work in different ways. However, as of yet there has not been a consistent approach to measuring outcomes across the many local and regional taskforces. This project aims to develop a shared outcomes framework and a set of common measures for taskforces to begin tracking the impact of their work in a consistent way. It is hoped that this will enable better understanding of what works to promote recovery from drug and alcohol misuse, enable learning across services, taskforces and regions and allow evidence of what interventions are effective at a local context to be fed into national strategy.
