TFA profiled in major national research paper

We are delighted that our work has been included as a case study in a research paper developed by Hassell and the Green Building Council of Australia. The paper defines Social Value and describes its relationship to the built environment in Australia, using local and international examples. The authors plan for it to be shared far and wide through the government and design industry.

On page 22, the report profiles our Social Return on Design Investment (SRODI) Tool, which we developed to measure the social impact of projects delivered in First Nations communities. We’ve tested it amongst our clients on Groote Eylandt and are confident of its value. You can watch a short video about our process here.

TFA Principal, Nick Juniper is a qualified social impact assessment practitioner. If you think we can add value to your community, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

I encourage and challenge you that as you get learnings from this paper, push it out into government, push it out into other sectors and to your suppliers. The more people who are considering measuring social value means better outcomes for everyone. – Anders Uechtritz, Principal at Social Ventures Australia
