In late Summer 2013 we completed a Social Return on Investment exercise on the Kirklees Advocacy Service. We wanted to find out the wider effect the Advocacy Service has had on the people who use it, the people who refer to it and the wider community as a whole.
Social Return on Investment exercises can sometimes seem a bit complicated, but essentially, they are an attempt to give a financial value to the effects that a service or activity has.
In this report you’ll see that for every £1 invested in the Advocacy Service, we believe we have delivered between £2.40 and £3.15.
Here is a summary of our findings:
