Enterprising Coventry: Measuring the wider impact helps understanding and promotion of real value

Coventry City Local Enterprise Growth Initiative, now ‘Enterprising Coventry’, is a programme providing a wide range of support services to help local people start their own business, assist an existing business or help people move into work. NEF Consulting worked closely with Coventry City Council for over a year to create an SROI reporting and valuing model that rigorously quantifies the added value of social and economic wellbeing outcomes and skills created by the programme.

The collaboration has provided Enterprising Coventry with a measurement system that includes a sophisticated set of social outcomes data collection tools, training for practitioners and the internal administrative capacity for on-going future impact measurement.

New Economics Foundation

NEF aims to create a new economy that works for people and within environmental limits. We are guided by three missions:

A new social settlement
To ensure people are paid well, have more time off to spend with their families, and have access to the things we all need for a decent life.

A Green New Deal
A plan for government-led investment to reduce the carbon we emit and boost nature, while creating a new generation of jobs.

The democratic economy
To devolve state power and transform ownership of the economy to give everyone an equal stake in the places where we live and work.
