A guide to Social Return on Investment /

by Nicholls, Jeremy | Lawlor, Eil s | Nietzert, Eva | Goodspeed, Tim.

Publisher: London, U.K. Cabinet Office of the third sector 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Every day our actions and activities create and destroy value; they change the world around us. Although the value we create goes far beyond what can be captured in financial terms, this is, for the most part, the only type of value that is measured and accounted for. As a result, things that can be bought and sold take on a greater significance and many important things get left out. Decisions made like this may not be as good as they could be as they are based on incomplete information about full impacts. ; A major step towards helping orgnaisations and institutions demonstrate their social, economic and environmental impact has taken place with the launch of a new guide to Social Return on Investment (SROI), backed by the Cabinet Office. This is especially timely when organisations are seeking to make every pound go as far as possible. ; This guide offers a framework for measuring and accounting for a much broader concept of value; it seeks to reduce inequality and environmental degradation and improve wellbeing by incorporating social, environmental and economic costs and benefits.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Alternative measures of well-being . /

by Boarini, Romina | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development | Johansson, sa | Mira D Ercole, Marco.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2006Description: PDF.Other title: OECD Economics Department. Working paper no. 476.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This paper assesses if GDP per capita is an adequate proxy as a measure of wellbeing or whether other indicators are more suitable for this purpose. Within the national accounts framework, other better measures of economic resources exist, but they are closely correlated with GDP per capita and are not as readily available. Illustrative calculations to ?extend? measures of economic resources to include leisure time, the sharing of income within households and distributional concerns suggest that cross-country ranking of based on these indicators and GDP per capita are generally similar, although they have evolved differently over time. Across OECD countries, levels of most measures of specific social conditions are significantly related to GDP per capita while changes over time are not. However, survey based data on happiness and life-satisfaction across OECD countries are only weakly related to levels of GDP per capita. Overall, measures of GDP per capita and economic growth remain critical for any assessment of wellbeing but they need to be complemented with measures of other dimensions of well-being to get a comprehensive picture of well-being.Availability: (1)
