Hi guys! I’m from the research team here at CDF.
In our research we see lots of ways that projects big and small can show the difference they’re making. One of these is Social Return on Investment (SROI) analysis. Don’t be put off by the scary name, it basically is about giving a financial value to all of the things that you put into the project – your money, time, equipment – and to all the impacts that you have. Then you can say “for every £1 that we spent on our project we created £5 worth of value to the local community”, for example.
