Being able to explain your impact to funders – both in monetary and social terms – is essential. It’s likely they’ll want robust evidence of how your services or products create social impact – such as wellbeing, carbon reduction or local economic value. This is about gaining competitive advantage – additional reasons to choose your organisation.
We’ll work with you to assess where best to focus your efforts for maximum impact, based on evidence gathered from the audiences you serve. We’ll help you arrive at a set of metrics to articulate your impact, together with an overall Social Return on Investment (SROI) figure.
With our knowledge of over 12 social value methodologies, we blend approaches to arrive at a framework that allows you to report your social value consistently, year on year.
This means we’ll help you capture metrics that are meaningful to your business and stakeholders and aligned to recognised approaches.
