Use data for learning and improvement

Understand your contribution to improving outcomes

Focus on what matters to people and communities

Measure your progress in a meaningful way

Tell the story about the difference you make

Outcome Focus is a mission-led, start-up company based in Edinburgh.
We work with organisations, projects and programmes to explore, map, analyse and assess the outcomes that matter to them, the people and populations they care about, and their funders.

We provide tools and techniques to bring together evidence, data and evaluation to ensure that projects and programmes can meet their outcomes, are successful and adaptable, and can demonstrate that success to funders, service-users and other stakeholders.

We have created an innovative and easy to use software product, Outcome Navigator©, which enables public service organisations and funders to make effective use of their data and information to learn, improve and tell the story about the difference they make.

Who we're working with

The Thistle Foundation

Our work with the Thistle Foundation has helped them to map their approach to improving outcomes for people at a strategic level. They are using our outcomes approach to create a system for demonstrating how their work achieves better lives for the people they support.


Scotland’s National Arts & Early Years organisation, Starcatchers, is using Outcome Navigator across all of their programmes and projects to understand and demonstrate the difference they make to the lives of young children age 0-5 and the adults who care for them.

NHS Lothian Detect Cancer Early team

As part of the national Detect Cancer Early Programme the NHS Lothian Detect Cancer Early team is looking at how to reduce inequalities in cancer detection for people with learning disabilities and women from ethnic minority groups. We are working with them to track their progress towards these outcomes.

Future Pathways

Future Pathways offers help and support to people who were abused or neglected as children while they were living in care in Scotland. We are working with them to set up an outcomes framework for the programme, and devise measures that will enable them to understand and demonstrate the difference they make.

Wester Hailes partnership

We are working with a partnership in Wester Hailes from the Healthy Living Centre, to help them understand and map their contribution to a shared project on food insecurity ’Tasting Change’. This will enable them to understand and evidence how each partner contributes to the project outcomes.

Latest news and insights

Currently in Beta phase, our simple-to-use cloud-based software provides the platform needed to embed outcomes thinking and evaluation into an organisation.

The software helps visualise and communicate the outcomes that matter to a project, programme or organisation; provides a way of bringing together the diverse forms of data, feedback and evaluation organisations need to demonstrate the difference they make, and; helps create stylish and powerful outcomes-focussed reports for funders, colleagues and service-users.
