ECLT Foundation
Envoy supported the team at the ECLT (Ending Child Labour in Tobacco) Foundation to implement the Social Return on Investment (SROI) methodology, and supported them to undertake SROIs in Uganda, Tanzania, and Malawi. As a result of the findings and conclusions of the SROI, ECLT have streamlined their programme strategy.

Key findings:
  • ECLT’s programmes demonstrate good value for money and create significant value,
  • The programmes have a major impact on the life chances of those affected by child labour, and on the well-being of the wider community,
  • This is particularly true of community investment programmes such as the Village Savings and Loans Associations,
  • The programmes have a significant impact on women and girls in particular,
  • The programmes have SROI ratios of between 2:1 and 12:1, meaning that they create between $2 and $12 for every $1 invested.

The social value of humanitarian aid in Donbass
Envoy Partnership has been engaged by Rinat Akhmetov Foundation to conduct the first social value study of a humanitarian aid intervention. The study explores the impact of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation’s Food Aid Initiative in the Donbass region of Ukraine.

Key findings:
  • The humanitarian aid initiative provided food to nearly 1 million people, and benefited 3.5 million people in total,
  • 72% of those supported would not have been able to feed themselves and their families without the food aid,
  • 96% of recipients said that the food aid made them feel not forgotten by the outside world. Overall, recipients’ well-being increased by 9%. This is a substantial improvement, given that beneficiaries were still living in a conflict zone that is facing huge challenges.
  • Over USD 1 billion of social value was created for the people of Donbass.

Live Life Better service
Envoy conducted a Social Return on Investment evaluation of the Exercise by Referral (Live Life Better) programme across eight district and borough councils across Derbyshire. The evaluation focused on the social and economic impact created for patients with vulnerabilities and complex health needs. Key findings:
  • Patients improved from an average of less than 20 minutes of exercise per week before the programme, to over 130 minutes per week after 12 weeks, and over 150 minutes per week after 52 weeks.
  • Almost 60% of patients reported reduced visits to GPs and hospitals.
  • Health professionals reported at least 50% have reduced their likelihood of an early death.
  • 1 in 4 patients had stopped or reduced the need for medication.
  • £6.60 of social and economic value is created per £1 invested, inclusive of £1.50 return on investment to the public purse.

The Centre for Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence
Envoy conducted an evaluation of the Centre for Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence (“CEME”). The evaluation focused on the social and economic impact created by the provision of rented office and workshop space to tenants, and the business support provided to tenants on the CEME site.

Key findings:
  • Job growth at CEME is seven times higher than for the UK overall,
  • The high quality of the CEME campus gives tenants credibility to their customers, and aids their recruitment,
  • The total economic impact of businesses based at CEME is around £53 million per year,
  • £4 of social and economic value is created for every £1 invested by CEME.
