Social Return on Investment
Impact Measurement and Analysis
SROI, or Social Return on Investment, is a framework that can be used to help manage and understand the social, economic and environmental outcomes created by an activity or organization, from a variety of backgrounds and sectors.
The training is recommended for individuals interested in learning how to structure, implement and evaluate social investments by analysing and measuring the return on social and environmental impact.
This can lead to increased value, welfare and sustainability for all stakeholders and parties involved.
The practitioner training itself provides a thorough overview of SROI from two main angles. The first day gives a practical, interactive, step-by-step introduction to the process of SROI via a case study that participants can bring along. The second day covers the more theoretical basis that underpins SROI, together with an exploration of issues that practitioners will need to demonstrate an understanding of if they wish to become accredited.
