applying social return on investment to community greenspace projects
greenspace scotland enabled 10 greenspace community groups to use a Social Return on Investment (SROI) approach to measure the value of their activities. greenspace is good so prove it was a two year SROI programme supported by the Big Lottery Fund.
A report of the findings and key learning points from the programme can be found here and a summary of the report can be found here
in May 2012 two of the SROI reports developed through the programme were assured by the SROI Network. Assurance means the analysis has been independently checked by qualified assessors and assured by a panel to have been prepared in line with the principles of SROI and is therefore to a consistent standard.
The two reports are:
Auchinleck Community Development Initiative
and Bums Off Seats
