Measuring Social Impact
A social enterprise is a business where society profits, and you’ll need to demonstrate the social value of your business, especially if you’re applying for grant funding. Showing how you’re benefiting society is also a great way to attract customers.
We can explain the different tools available for measuring your impact – and if you need something more in-depth we can link you with the University’s Institute for Social Innovation and Impact team for a bespoke quotation.

This is the exciting bit – the bit where it starts to feel real! Our team of advisers will help you ensure that you have the critical pillars in place before beginning your year one journey.
