Introduction to SROI

Our Introduction to SROI courses are designed for people who would like to know more about SROI and how it can help them. The Intro course can act as good preparation for the 2 day SROI Practitioner course, or as a standalone piece for people interested to know more about SROI.

The Intro course is delivered in three ways:

1. Live webinars

The online sessions are run as three two-hour webinars. Each session can be taken separately, however all three taken in order are a complete Introduction to SROI.

The next sets of live webinars are scheduled for:


23, 24, 25 May 2017Book online here.
10, 11, 12 October 2017Book online here.

The cost is £125 + VAT (if in the UK) for the full set, or £50 + VAT per webinar. You can book online by following the links in the table to our Eventbrite page.

For more information please contact: Clare Bentley, 0151 703 9229,


2. Recorded webinars

Recorded Webinar imageWe have uploaded a collection of edited, recorded versions of the live webinars from 2014 onto our Vimeo channel.

The interactive elements have been removed for the sake of continuity, but as a set, the webinars will still provide a good overview of the material from the webinars, including the Seven Principles of Social Value, how they can be applied, and why SROI is useful for a range of organisations.

The webinars can be rented for 30 days at £30.10 each, or all three for £80.27.

Go to our Vimeo channel for more information.

The Introduction to SROI course can also be delivered as an in-house course, or as part of a bespoke package, by one of our trainers. For more information, please contact us at
