Cycling UK is a trading name of the Cyclists' Touring Club. The brand is simply a tool that the Trustees have chosen to use in promoting the objects of the Club.
The Charitable objects of the Cyclists' Touring Club are:-
1.7 The objects for which the Club is established (the Objects) are to:
........ 1.7.1 promote community participation in healthy recreation by promoting the amateur sport of cycling, cycle touring and associated amateur sports;
........ 1.7.2 preserve and protect the health and safety of the public by encouraging and facilitating cycling and the safety of cyclists;
........ 1.7.3 advance education by whatever means the trustees think fit, including the provision of cycling, training and educational activities related to cycling;
........ 1.7.4 promote the conservation and protection of the environment.
Cycling UK cannot have different goals to the Cyclists' Touring Club, but I'm sure weareCyclingUK already knew that

How do you measure it success or failure compare to the ctc
Cycling UK is a trading name, not a legal entity. You can only seek to measure the performance of the Cyclists' Touring Club.
You may try to compare the past performance of the CTC trading name with the future performance of the Cycling UK trading name but it would not be a simple task.

I'm sure that in promoting the charitable objects Cycling UK's aims include increasing membership, influence and cycle safety whilst having sufficient funding. However there are many factors beside the trading name that may influence their success and whilst these may be among the measures they seem unlikely to be the only ones.
