Proving Social Impact
Pulse Regeneration offers a range of services to evidence social impact, for example when supporting funding applications or proving value when bidding for public service contracts. One of these tools is Social Return on Investment (SROI), which has recently been acknowledged by health secretary Andrew Lansley as being able to provide “very clear evidence” of how the social enterprise model "does deliver”. Pulse is currently developing a partnership with Liverpool John Moores University to expand the delivery of this exciting service. If you are interested in proving social value please contact us for further information.
