Charity Leadership Teams

Face the challenge of securing funds to keep doing what they are good at. To do this they need to understand what activities can make the most impact, deliver a quality service, measure the impact of the service and tell others how what they do makes a difference.

There is an increasing expectation for organisations to show that they take social value seriously and contribute positively to society. The Social Value Act (2012) calls for all public sector commissioning to factor in economic, social and environmental well-being in connection with the issuing of public services contracts.

In response to this, Collective Change was established to work with private, public and third-sector organisations to help them define, measure and communicate the social value they create.

Our Services

Social Value

Social Value is a concept that goes beyond monetary indicators and emphasises the importance of understanding the impact of decisions on people’s lives.

It aims for organisations to create a net positive impact on society, both present and sustainable.

By measuring social value, organizations can make informed decisions, demonstrate their impact, and improve the well-being of their stakeholders.

Environmental Impact

Our service helps organizations identify and measure their environmental impact, demonstrating their commitment to sustainability and reducing carbon footprint.

It helps organisations reduce waste, conserve resources, improve efficiency, and save money.

Partnering with us shows stakeholders that they are committed to a sustainable future, attracting and retaining customers, investors, and employees who share values and encourage compliance with environmental regulations.

Sign up for our environmental impact measurement service today to make a positive difference.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is crucial for businesses to demonstrate their values, vision, and goals, while also demonstrating accountability and transparency.

CSR can enhance a company’s reputation and brand image, attract and retain loyal customers and employees, increase competitiveness and innovation, and create positive social change and environmental sustainability.

By prioritising social causes, businesses can demonstrate their commitment to social causes, gain trust and loyalty among stakeholders, and contribute to social progress and sustainable development.
