This report presents an evaluative Social Return on Investment (SROI) analysis. It is based on a collaborative project between sports coach UK and StreetGames, with the primary research conducted between September 2014 and July 2016 in Tyneside, UK.
In striving to drive the development of the coaching industry, sports coach UK identified Social Return on Investment (SROI) as a method to understand the true value of developing coaches with the capability to deliver high quality coaching sessions.
The report focuses on three organisations in Tyneside that, between September 2013 and May 2015, developed a cohort of five individuals to deliver high quality coaching sessions in their local community.
This report tells the story of the SROI evaluation. It is written in accordance with the SROI principles and its transparency is intended to provide the coaching industry (and beyond) with confidence in the results.
