Social Value International works with a number of networks around the world, to promote The Seven Principles of Social Value, refine and share practice, and to build a powerful movement of like-minded people to influence policy.

We currently have 25 Networks, that include individual and organisational members who coordinate a range of activities, including:

  • Events and conferences
  • SROI practitioner and impact analyst training
  • Development and translation of guidance
  • Research projects
  • Thematic working groups
  • Consultancy projects
  • Awards and competitions

Networks are able to affiliate with Social Value International as either Joint Member Networks or Associate Network.

Where are networks being developed?

We are in conversation with members about exploring new Networks or working with existing networks in:

  • Colombia
  • Jordan
  • Germany
  • Ireland

If you would be interested in starting a Network in your country or region, please email us.

How do I join an existing network?

To join an existing Associate Network you can Become a member of Social Value International and we will share your details with your local Network. To join an Joint Member Network, you will need to contact the Network directly.

How do I set up a new network?
National Networks are created by a group of Social Value International members (3+, including at least one Organisational Member) coming together to coordinate the exploration and formation of the network.
