How can you capture the value created for people and the environment in your decision making and reporting? How do you design your programs and strategies with clarity and certainty around the impacts you will be having?
Social Return on Investment provides the answers.
About the course
Social Return on Investment (SROI) is an internationally recognised approach for understanding and measuring the impacts of a program, organisation or policy. Through engaging with stakeholders, it is possible to identify the social, environmental and economic impacts generated, and place a financial value on this impact.
This 2-day SROI training course takes a practical and hands-on approach to providing you with the principles, method and tools needed to carry out an SROI analysis. It combines a thorough understanding of the theoretical background to SROI and its long-term benefits, with a step- by-step guide to conducting an SROI backed up by a range of practical group exercises. Training participants are provided with resources and templates to conduct your own SROI analysis.
This is your chance to learn from the leaders in social impact measurement. Think Impact’s approach extends beyond the methodology to introduce you to the tools and innovations tried and tested by our team of practitioners. These include software demonstrations and the use of film to communicate results.
Completion of this SROI training is a requirement for those wanting to become an accredited SROI practitioner. Other requirements include becoming a member of Social Value International and completing an SROI that meets the requirements of the SROI assurance process.

- Impact practitioners looking to conduct SROIs or manage team members or consultants to do so
