Social Impact and Evaluation

We combine technical expertise, with practical application to understand, measure and optimise the social impact and value you create.

Social value and social impact is an increasingly crucial part of an organisation’s strategy, delivery and reporting.  It is crucial to winning new business and, in a systematic way that supports you to maximise the impact of what you do, to better understand why you are doing what you’re doing.

Our team of social impact professionals combine technical capabilities with deep practical application.

Social Value Strategy

We help organisations harness their capabilities to create a Social Value strategy that connects their social goals with their wider business goals, capturing and articulating the connection between organisational approach, behaviours, actions, processes and overall social value.  We do this in ways that respond to relevant public policy and local socio-economic issues, and create meaningful impact to for your community.

Evaluation and Impact Assessments

We recognise there are a range of positive benefits generated by your services, over and above the financial or clinical data evaluation. These benefits might include impacts on wellbeing, feeling of social connection and belonging, or the time in which an intervention was able to get employees back to work. We draw on a range of creative yet robust methodologies to ensure that you can measure the things that matter and communicate them effectively to your stakeholders, building a comprehensive view.

Social Value Measurement

We can support you to navigate monetising your social outcomes and measuring them for business cases, or evaluative projects. Using Cost-Benefit Analysis as a foundation, we can help you to measure the total social value generated by your project in a consistent and robust way.

Social Value Bid Support

As a sub-function of our Bid Support offer, Baxendale also help specifically on Social Value responses for bids. We will help you understand and communicate your Social Value offer in a clear and compelling way.
