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.
