Research and evaluation


In setting up Orb8 our team were looking for a tool to measure mental health presentation and the impact of our work. We found that the present tools were not specialist enough or did not have the scope required so Dr Jane Herd has written our own!

IMP is the Impact Measurement Presentation tool and is specifically written to map the initial areas of mental health difficulties presented by Hard to reach, traumatised and marginalised Children and Young People and to follow their progress over time. We are working with academic partners to metricise and evaluate the tool which will be piloted with Orb8 organisational and individual associates.

If you would like to know more, get in touch.
