This report presents a forecast SROI calculation of a project undertaken by Essential Living Future in 2016. This intervention engaged NEETs (Not in Education, Employment or Training) in a residential trip to Cornwall, known as the Cornwall Exchange, which widened their experience and furnished them with the confidence and aspiration to enter employment or training.

We have chosen to embark on an SROI calculation due to the holistic and rigorous approach it takes to measuring impact. This method measures tangible, participant-endorsed changes to create a well-rounded analysis of an intervention. Through providing financial proxies for social, economic and environmental outcomes, organisations can understand what their true impact is. This allows us to improve on delivering positive outcomes, rather than being focused on getting young people through a “treadmill training” which does not cater for their needs.

SROI reveals a more effective way of analysing our approach to unlocking young people’s potential by focusing on their individual strengths and weaknesses, what is important to them and facilitating an environment where these changes can happen.
