Newlon Fusion launch for SROI results
nef consulting supported Newlon Fusion, the Community Regeneration partner of Newlon Housing Trust, to undertake a social valuation of its services to unemployed residents. Through outreach workers and links to local courses and support, Newlon Fusion supports residents to become work ready or start their own businesses. Our research helped to understand the outcomes for participants and articulate the wider impacts that the services have on local residents and the wider community.
The research found that the greatest benefits for residents were increased confidence and increased skills for employment/ entrepreneurship. There were also gains for the wider community (the State) through reduced benefit payments and higher taxes. Newlon Fusion are using the results of the research to improve their data collection systems, to better measure outcomes for their residents, and to share the results with their funders.
