We are pleased to announce that Aleron is the newest organisational member to join the SROI Network, soon to be Social Value UK.
Aleron is a social impact consulting firm. They work with organisations ranging from small (The Winch, Only Connect) to large (NSPCC, RNIB, Barnardo’s) to help them improve their social impact measurement – from developing theories of change to implementing frameworks for measurement and evaluation.
Aleron was recently named a provider for the Cabinet Office’s Impact Readiness Fund, and supported a number of organisations in the development of their fund applications. They are aiming to contribute to the growth of the sector and will be launching a social innovation platform and a social impact fund, using the SROI methodology as well as social investment products that leverage their expertise in capacity building and social impact improvement.
Aleron have said ‘We are very keen to be part of the SROI Network and participating in networking and training events. We think that this will be an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas with other organisations specialising in impact measurement and to keep up-to-date with what is happening with impact measurement internationally.’
‘For us, joining the SROI Network/Social Value UK is a really exciting opportunity. We are looking forward to participating in the international movement to share knowledge, best practice, and resources to fellow organisations who are dedicated to solving society’s most challenging problems.’

About the SROI Network | www.thesroinetwork.org
Social Return on Investment (SROI) is a framework for measuring and accounting for the value created or destroyed by our activities – where the concept of value is much broader than that which can be captured by market prices. SROI seeks to reduce inequality and environmental degradation and improve wellbeing by taking account of this broader value.
The SROI Network, soon to be Social Value UK, is an international membership organisation with members in over 40 countries. It exists to support the vision of SROI through the formation of a collaborative network of individuals and organisations dedicated to the practice and support of SROI.
The membership comprises business advisors, academics, funders and individuals representing organisations across all sectors. All members want to inﬂuence change through their work; practicing SROI, creating national networks, developing the methodology and gathering examples of SROI and how it is being used.
