The practice of Social Return on Investment is slowly becoming recognised around the UK as a valuable aspect of measuring a company’s performance – not just in the 3rd sector, but also across all of industry.
In this one-day event, LORIC aims to bring together practitioners and beneficiaries of Social Return on Investment, both past, present, and future, to discuss challenges, opportunities, and means of implementation. Special invitations will be extended to LORIC beneficiaries at various stages of their journeys with social return on investment, which will give them a chance to engage with other practitioners, talk about best practices, and exchange ideas about the future.
Who is this event for? Anybody interested in Social Return on Investment to engage with the tool to measure their impact, but especially small and medium enterprises that may not be able to afford a full-on assessment, and academics interested in how Social Return on Investment works in practice.
What is the goal of the event? To exchange best practices, to discuss ways of operationalising social return on investment at different levels, and to explore the roles which open data may play in the social return on investment ecosystem.
How accessible is the event? The LORIC building has level access, a lift, and disabled toilets. We do our best to accommodate all visitors, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch about any particular requirements you have.
