Existing Evidence Showing the Social Return on Social Return on Investment from the Prisoners as Advisers Project. Open PDF version.

In 2010 research was undertaken to assess the Social Return on Investment (SROI) of a volunteer project that assisted in the rehabilitation of prisoners from Sudbury Prison. The aim of the research was to determine the outcomes and benefits generated by the project to the stakeholders involved. These were measured by examining a financial value according to the social good generated, which is expressed by proxies or average statistical figures.

This document will re-examine this research with a view to updating the data to the latest figures for each stakeholder identified, to the year 2012/2013.
