Earlier this year Network for Change commissioned a full SROI report to gather evidence of the social and economical impact of our services and ultimately strengthen the case for future funding.
The report was carried out by Andy Bagley of Real Improvement and was an invaluable tool in realizing the impact our projects have on both individuals futures and the public purse. For example the report found that every £1 invested in Network for Change generates an average saving of £4.70. Another headline statistic is that 1 years Outreach support costs the same as 3 weeks acute psychiatric hospital admission. These striking headline figures demonstrate the real value of local 3rd sector providers and the contribution we make to the local services and the local economy.
