Support and Resources During COVID-19

This page is a place to collate everything going on to assist us all to get through the COVID-19 pandemic. Below you’ll find work going on by Social Value UK and Social Value International, as well as resources from within our network and other resources we think you may find useful.

Social Value UK Support

Social Value UK is offering a range of distance learning options:

Online Social Value and SROI Practitioner Training covers all of the same content as our original two-day course, delivered through five sessions over two weeks with group webinars and assignments. This is more contact time than takes place on the physical 2-day course and will include some individual feedback.

Further information is available here.

This Course and Accreditation

Social Value and SROI Practitioner Training does not include or guarantee accreditation but is a necessary step towards becoming an Accredited or Advanced practitioner. Find out more about the Practitioner Pathway (additional costs apply).

OPTION 2) Social Value International Practitioner Package and Level 1: Associate Practitioner 

The Practitioner Package is a dedicated online learning platform that will guide you, step-by-step, through an SROI or Social Impact Report. This package is designed to offer practical support for anyone developing their social impact practice.  

It contains a library of resources including templates for data collection and reporting and a series of introductory training videos that help practitioners to prepare for the online exam to become an Associate Practitioner with SVI.  

Associate Practitioner applications cost £300+VAT and the Practitioner Package costs £100 for one year of access. Find out more about the Practitioner Package here, and about the Practitioner Pathway here

OPTION 3) Remote Mentoring costing £2250 + VAT, with discounts available for members

The SROI mentoring programme is designed for individual practitioners who have completed the Practitioner Training and are undertaking an SROI. During three days of support, you will be taken through the SROI process, from scoping to reporting in five mentoring steps. These costs include 21 hours of remote contact (email, phone, Skype etc.) with a mentor.
