SROI has given us a competitive advantage because it helps us to engage in the bidding process. Businesses are coming to us because of our findings through SROI.
The most significant benefit of the social value studies has been the greater understanding it has given of how we can improve our performance.
We find showing people’s journeys on the whole, and not just the outcomes we intended or the success stories, means that we are asking, and encouraging other people to ask, the important questions.
What is Social Value UK?
Social Value UK is the national network for anyone interested in social value and social impact.
We work with our members to increase the accounting, measuring and managing of social value from the perspective of those affected by an organisation’s activities, through our Social Value Principles. We believe in a world where a broader definition of value will change decision making and ultimately decrease inequality and environmental degradation.
