SROI and Value for Money (VFM)

Just Economics is a leading provider of economic analysis and evaluation.  We are experienced in the use of a variety of economic methodologies. We work most regularly with Social Cost-Benefit Analysis (SCBA) and Social Return on Investment (SROI) methodologies. 

At Just Economics we have supported the development of the SROI methodology and have been applying it to a range of social issues over the past ten years. This has included co-authoring the official Cabinet Office guidance on SROI and providing assurance and methodology support to Social Value UK. We have a bespoke approach to conducting SROI and tailor each analysis to the research aims and data availability.

In addition, we have conducted economic analyses and provided advice on value for money approaches to public, corporate and NGO clients. We have worked on projects that have modelled the impact on public finances of interventions in a range of areas from homelessness and digital exclusion through to social care. In 2017, we completed a review of Value for Money approaches for a large DfID-funded project.
