I went to a workshop on 3rd September to learn more about Social Return on Investment – or SROI to the initiated! It was in a lovely venue, the Melting Pot in Edinburgh, which is worth a look if you are looking for a good workshop space in the capital. SROI is a way of assigning a financial value to the ‘return’ or change that happens as a result of your project or programme and then working out the ratio of total investment : return. There are a lot of factors to take into account in working out how much of any evidenced change is actually a result of your project of course! At least I now know a bit more about it but still a lot to learn.
