Measuring Social Impact for Policies, Programmes and Projects: Getting It Done

Authored by Rory Dillon, Tom Burgess
Edited by Mike Dillon, John Heap

Social impact assessment is a means of creating a dialogue that seeks to help project organisers and funders to secure their intended outcomes ... in terms of the (short and longer-term) effects that a particular project or programme has on improving the well-being of the various groups and societies involved.

This book uses real-life case studies and worked examples to illustrate best practice in planning and executing a social impact assessment in a variety of project contexts.
