If you are thinking about commissioning a Social Value or SROI analysis, there are a couple of questions you should consider.

Should you use an Accredited Practitioner?

An Accredited Practitioner will have attended accredited social value and SROI training and subsequently been accredited by Social Value International.

Using an Accredited Practitioner gives you assurance that the person understands and has experience of applying the Principles of Social Value.

Should you have your report assured?

Regardless of whether you decide to use an Accredited Practitioner, you will want to know that the work you have commissioned meets the internationally recognised standards set by Social Value International. Getting your report assured will give your work, calculations, assumptions and findings a mark of quality and credibility.

You should make a provision in your budget for the cost of assurance.
