Social Return on Investment, or SROI, is a system of accounting for all of the social and environmental value of your activities. Applying SROI to your work can have a whole range of benefits – from demonstrating your impact in a clear and transparent way to improving your service delivery, winning contracts and tenders to being accountable to your stakeholders, SROI helps you to maximise the potential of your social value.
Social Value UK’s Social Value & SROI Practitioner Training course is accredited by the Institute of Leadership Management and is delivered by accredited trainers and SROI practitioners. We have been delivering this training course for over seven years to over 1200 people.
Day one is a practical, step-by-step introduction to the SROI process. We will begin with some theory, but the process is best learnt by trying it, so candidates will learn how to develop an impact map and explore appropriate real life examples.
Day two covers in depth, more theoretical issues including valuation techniques and counterfactuals, as well as discussing examples of best practice at different levels of rigour.

The forum is designed to provide business delegates with the guidance to develop and implement robust human rights strategies, whilst remaining compliant with all emerging legislation.
By bringing together a broad range of the key players, we’re able to get to crux of the big issues. Highlights include:
- Hear from IHRB, BT and Sky on the benefits of forming multi-stakeholder initiatives and overcoming barriers to collaboration
- Co-op, Freedom Fund, BHRRC and Baroness Lola Young debate whether modern slavery legislation has driven change or solely compliance
- Are audits a waste of time, or an effective regulatory tool? Nokia, Manor Fresh and The Body Shop provide their perspectives
- Hilton, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Nestlé on the effects of emerging legislation, what compliance will require and how much it will cost
- John Lewis, Mattel and JLL join us to discuss how internal collaboration makes for an effective, meaningful modern slavery statement
We’ll also run a number of practical sessions to discuss: supply chain risk mapping, responsible recruitment, child rights, remediation, living wage and more.
We will welcome senior professionals from Twinings, Disney, Next, Chevron, Kerry, ING, British American Tobacco, Mondelēz, Save The Children, Siemens, Multiplex, Dixons Carphone, Ocado, Danone, Allianz Global Investors, The B Team, International Justice Mission, Know The Chain, Unseen, Reckitt Benckiser, Chartered Institute of Building, Corporate Human Rights Benchmark, Stronger Together, Hope For Justice, Global Reporting Initiative and many more.
