Oaks Consultancy joins the SROI Network, soon to be Social Value UK

Posted 27th November 2014

Oaks Consultancy has become the latest organisational member to join the SROI Network (soon to be Social Value UK).

Based in the West Midlands, Oaks Consultancy has an extensive history of impact measurement. Their recent work includes evaluation of a number of national sporting projects.

Oaks’ experience in SROI sprung from a social value evaluation of Streetgames Swindon (a project Oaks helped to create and fund), commissioned for Swindon Borough Council. The report is set to be completed over a three year period.

Luke Southall, Director of Business Development at Oaks, said “Social impact measurement is an increasingly important area within the voluntary sector and has become an integral part of the Oaks service offering over the last couple of years. We are delighted to join Social Value UK and look forward to meeting and hopefully working with the range of fantastic network members on a variety of different projects.”

The SROI Network, soon to be Social Value UK, are pleased to welcome Oaks Consultancy and look forward to working with them to support and promote the measurement and management of social value.

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.
