UCL’s The Bartlett Manual of Impact

Bartlett Manual of Impact, University College London, March 2024

The Bartlett Manual of Impact aims to support individuals, groups and departments to develop a mindset for creating meaningful impacts.


The Bartlett Manual of Impact provides guidance, stories and practical tips to promote effective impact practices.

At the heart of making meaningful impact lies a crucial element: relationships. Within the Manual we emphasise the importance of creating relationships, and promote learning around core principles of impact:

  • trust and care
  • power and equity
  • learning and reflection

We break down actionable solutions for common challenges encountered in the pursuit of impactful processes from our research, teaching and practice.
