St George Community Housing (SGCH) have social objectives at the core of their mission, so measurement of these objectives is an important aspect of demonstrating the organisation’s performance. SGCH were also targeting the Green Star Social Return on Investment (SROI) Innovation Credit.
Edge worked with the construction team and SGCH staff to identify key social criteria and construct a ‘theory of change’ that describes how the project will impact SGCH stakeholders.
Data was then gathered through surveys, as well as other SGCH measurement activities.
The project measured the social return on investment not only to meet the requirements of the Green Star SROI Innovation Credit but also to link the outcomes with the overall mission of the organisation.
