Social Return on InvestmentHome What we do Social Return on Investment Unleash Compassion - Improving Welfare at Both Ends of the Leash We know how valued our community programs are, to our clients who use these critical services, and by you, the generous animal lovers who fund them. But how do you measure the impact these programs have? We are all very used to tallying the number of animals we care for, or the investigations we undertake, but when considering programs that prevent future suffering, or provide relief and support for pet owners in a time of crisis, how do you calculate the long-term impact those services have on our community? Social Return on Investment (SROI) is a new method for measuring values that are not traditionally expressed in impact reports and financial statements. These can include social, economic, and environmental factors. RSPCA NSW is very excited to now share three new assessments calculating the impact and the social return your investment in these wonderful community programs has. After you have read them, we would love your feedback and thoughts about the impact of these programs and their continued role in RSPCA NSW’s work.
