SROI is a type of ‘social accounting’ which attempts to identify and place a value

on non-economic costs and benefits and is a model which is becoming widely used within the social sector and others. This pilot study focuses on predicting the Social Returns on Investment achieved through selected projects and services within three member organisations and across the SAFE consortium during the period 1st April 2013 to 31st March 2014. The data suggest that collectively the SAFE Consortium members included in this analysis are projected to create a total social value of £3.56 million from an overall investment of £379,332. This suggests a net SROI ratio of £8.38, meaning that for every £1 invested, a social return of £8.38 will be achieved.
