Matt Stevenson-Dodd BA (Hons), PG Dip, MBA (Distinction)

Founder / Managing Director

Matt founded Trust Impact in January 2019 with the aim of helping organisations tackle the important question of how to measure and report impact from a more transparent, strategic and pragmatic viewpoint.


Prior to Trust Impact, Matt was CEO of Street League, the UK’s leading sport for employment charity. He joined as CEO in 2010 and changed the direction of the organisation, focusing on tackling youth unemployment through sport. Street League grew rapidly, with an average 42% growth in impact every year and 24% annual growth in income - from 2 cities and 25 staff in 2010 to 14 cities and 140 full time staff by 2016, changing the lives of thousands of young people every year. 


Under Matt’s leadership, Street League launched an innovative online impact dashboard showing real time transparent impact data including all the young people Street League were not able to help - a first for the sector - www.streetleague.co.uk/impact. In 2016 he led a campaign to encourage the charity and social enterprise sector to be more transparent about impact reporting - #CallForClarity.


In 2017 Matt was appointed to The Guardian Public Leaders editorial advisory board, was one of the top charity CEO's on social media (#SocialCEOs 2015/2016) and in 2014 was selected as one of the top 5 people to follow on Twitter on Social Isolation and Underemployment. Number 10 Downing Street chose Street League to be its first ever official volunteering partner in 2011.


Prior to Street League Matt was Chief Executive of Young Enterprise North West and Founder CEO of the multi-award winning ‘Unique Social Enterprise CIC’ in Newark. In 2016 Matt was appointed as a Trustee of St John Ambulance. 


All of this is underpinned by a strong academic record which includes an MBA with Distinction from Nottingham University and a scholarship from Harvard Business School where Matt undertook their world-leading Strategic Perspectives In Non-Profit Management Course in 2012.
