What was said ..

We have worked with Heidi for four years now. Heidi provides social impact measurement and SROI analyses and reports for our clients.

The benefits to our clients of having social impact data is that they can evidence the social difference their services make, are able to communicate with stakeholders about more than just value for money, identify where they can improve their services further and use the data and information to demonstrate to commissioners their services’ added value, which in turn helps secure new contracts, win tenders and attract investment.

Clients have included a range of spin outs from the NHS, as well as other social enterprises and Mutuals, ranging in income from a few million to £80 million. Heidi is experienced in the standard SROI and Social Accounting methodologies and principles that are seen as credible by Central and Local Government as well as the NHS; and uses these when working with our clients.

The financial proxies used to value social outcomes are obtained from verified sources – primarily statutory agencies – which is essential in our objective to provide credible, transparent reports to our clients. Heidi has proven to be flexible and a good communicator, who can find the right level of sophistication suited to each individual client’s needs. Her outputs are clear, thorough, yet eminently engaging and legible.
