Social Impact Measurement Handbook News > Social Impact Measurement Handbook
This document has been created as part of the CIBUS 05 sub project under Sub Objective 5 of the People Project. The handbook provides social enterprises and other mission driven organisations, (as well as commissioners and procurers) with ways in which to measure, understand and improve their social impact over the long term.

Measuring the social impact of our work will help us to improve what we do and, ultimately, to improve more people’s lives. The handbook provides you with:
1.- A background to social impact measurement (SIM)
2.- Definition of SIM
3.- A framework to understand how SIM helps you improve your organisation
4.- Case study examples
5.- SIM methods and guidance on how to use them
6.- A practical and intuitive way to measure social impact in an organisation
7.- Information and methodology that you can use in responding to calls from Commissioners and procurement officers.
