Views functionality

Views includes contact management tools, session and attendance registers, surveying and outcome functionality, statistical reporting, and much more. Powerful yet easy-to-use, the system is the primary data capture tool for hundreds of charities and organisations throughout the UK and beyond.

Our clients range from national funders and commissioners to smaller local charities. We understand that organisations vary in their resources and needs, and we offer several packages that can be tailored to your budget and requirements.

People are where it all starts in Views. The people you work with, your staff, your volunteers and your stakeholders.

The flexible structure lets you record the data that is most important to you and generate insight into socio-demographic profiles, outcomes, qualifications and much more.


Whether you deliver regular sessions, mass participation events, targeted projects, one to one counselling, family intervention services, participatory activities or all of the above, Views helps you record information about your projects and services quickly and intuitively.

The evidence module gives you tools to demonstrate the difference you’re making.

The media library enables you to store and link your images, videos and documents in one place. The case study builder combines narrative observations and images to bring the story of your impact to life.

Questionnaires enables you to create your own forms and surveys and to access validated outcomes measurement tools, tracking progress from initial engagement through to programme completion.

Views Intelligence is where it all comes together. Statistic summaries generate real-time KPI reports, providing instant access insight and tracking progress against your targets.

The Statistics wizard helps you build your own queries which get into the nitty gritty of your data.

The reports tool enables you to collate case studies, survey responses and statistics in a single report and publish online for easy sharing with key stakeholders.

Greenhouse Sports , Jason Stewart
“In adopting Views as our system, we have been able to meet the challenges of reporting whilst also being able to get useful information for our client”.
We Are Survivors , Duncan Craig
“By investing in Views, we have been able to create an improved evaluation strategy. The system has streamlined our previous processes and given us a ‘one-stop’ portal for all data collection and analysis”.
Ospreys in the Community, Paul Whapham
“StreetGames really values the importance of data and a large part of our support package is to help organisations in our network, often small community organisations, understand that being able to evidence impact will help you become a more sustainable organisation. Monitoring systems like Views are purpose built for this – in recent years we’ve effectively been able to standardise data collection and monitoring processes across whole programmes, sometimes involving up to 200 organisations at one time. With Views, we’re able to add a really strong evidence base to the narrative, that sport produces positive outcomes for young people in need”.
StreetGames, Daniel Grice
“The LFC Foundation has worked closely with Substance for the past three years. Our partnership with Substance has helped us to understand and quantify our impact. Their expertise and guidance have allowed us to measure the positive influence of our initiatives more accurately. This insight has not only enhanced our programmes but also enabled us to communicate our achievements more effectively to our stakeholders. Substance has consistently provided invaluable support, always responding in an efficient and friendly manner.

We look forward to continuing our collaboration in the future”.

“Working with Substance and Gavin Mellor has been transformational for Manchester United Foundation. It has enabled us to understand and quantify the impact we are having on young people and allowed us to navigate the complex challenges of today’s world.
This has involved creating a team approach to data and insight, which has enhanced accountability and driven positive change in the way we report and evidence our work.
The Substance team has been amazing to work with: they not only have great subject knowledge and experience, but they are also willing to listen and create bespoke solutions to the challenges we encounter on a daily basis – in turn, enabling us to create meaningful and lasting social change”.
Manchester United Foundation, Matt Johnson
