Social impact measurement is a hot topic at the moment. With governments scaling back the services they provide, greater burden is being placed on charities and not-for-profits to support people. At the same time, there is more scrutiny over how money is spent, especially when a financial return cannot be identified. Social impact measurement provides a much needed perspective to evaluate all of an organisations activity.
HACT was first launched in 1960 to support housing associations, and now works closely with the housing sector to meet changing needs with data services, impact analysis, and strategic research. As the UK’s largest not-for-profit sector, a simple way of assessing social impact was needed. Working with Daniel Fujiwara HACT developed wellbeing valuation, which quickly became the industry standard.
This workshop will explore the methodology and explain how it has been used in the social housing sector, including a chance to test the approach.
