NEF developed the SROI methodology in the UK and now NEF Consulting offers a range of products, including a 2-day Social Return on Investment (SROI) training course. Since we first started delivering SROI training in 2009 we have received excellent feedback. You can read just some of our testimonials at the bottom of this page.

About the course
- NEF Consulting’s SROI training is facilitated by SROI practitioners, and counts towards accreditation as an assured practitioner.
- It covers all the methodology and practice needed to carry out an SROI analysis. It combines a thorough understanding of the theoretical policy background to SROI and its long-term benefits, with a step-by-step guide to the SROI methodology backed up by a range of practical group exercises.
- This is the only accredited course that incorporates building an SROI model on a spreadsheet rather than as a paper and pen based exercise.
- It is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to use SROI and its findings, and to undertake SROI analyses for themselves.
- It draws on the extensive SROI experience of a large team of SROI practitioners based at NEF and NEF Consulting. NEF co-wrote the Cabinet Office Guide to SROI.
- We offer a series of follow-up workshops to build the skills of practitioners, such as Creating a Theory of Change. Please contact us to find our more.
- All attendees are offered half an hour of free post-training telephone consultancy to guide them through their first SROI analysis.
- Reduced rate consultancy packages are exclusively available to attendees.

Bespoke training and ‘masterclasses’
