Social value is changing organisational practices rapidly. We can help you develop a strategy that utilises your strengths, addresses the needs of your customers and stakeholders, and gives you a competitive edge at a local or international level.
We can help you manage and embed the reporting of your local or global impact on stakeholders and society. We provide management tools that inform programme design, consolidate monitoring processes, and enhance analysis and reporting. We can also second a social value expert to your team.
We have supported over 1,000 people with their impact journey through a range of training, mentoring, and capacity building services. These include SROI training, Theory of Change workshops, and mentoring different teams on impact monitoring techniques. Our courses are continuously updated to incorporate best practice in the field,…
Our team of social value practitioners can help build the unique story on the value that you create for your stakeholders in a credible, comparable, and robust way . We navigate different valuation approaches, databases, and measurement tools, aligning with international standards and Social Value principles.
We can help you assess the effectiveness of your programmes and how much difference they make to your stakeholders. We draw on process effectiveness models and impact evaluation techniques, to highlight your strengths, outcomes, and areas for development.
We can tell you what your stakeholders are saying, what they experience, and how they are acting. We use qualitative and quantitative methods to help you understand what this means for your organisation, and empower you to make data-driven decisions.
“(The best bit of Envoy’s work was) their willingness to get engaged with staff and tenants and visit the developments and really work hard to understand the issues and the people behind the stories… Generally excellent and I would certainly be happy to recommend them to others.”
“(The best bits of Envoy’s work were) developing a good working relationship and having an understanding of the complexity and challenges of the work of the Afiya Trust. The workshops and interviews with our stakeholders along with the analysis work which our trustees found engaging.”
“Thorough, well evidenced, well written piece of work. Excellent communication throughout the process. First class, empathetic approach to interviews with our service users and staff… An excellent piece of work. We would be very likely to use Envoy again for similar commissions in the future.”
“They worked really well with our intern and gave him guidance and new skills to carry out the work. Also the work allowed us to demonstrate the impact of our community investment work to the board and make the business case for substantially increased budget for the future… We now have a large budget to invest in the community so there should be a substantial impact on the community as a result of this piece of work.”
“Whilst speaking to potential consultants Envoy Partnership stood out as the organisation that could bring the skills required for the task and also paid the greatest attention to our objectives. Envoy Partnership adapted throughout the project for example in designing the project team to meet our budget, altering their approach during the data collection phase, and providing a variety of forms of feedback at the end of the project… This project may kick start a new robust but practical approach to evaluation across the organisation.”
