Ensuring that our work delivers social value and social impact is intrinsic to all we do at RISE. As a Community Interest Company, we are committed to demonstrating clear outcomes and re-investing in the community. We are continually evaluating our services to monitor and measure the impact we are having on our service users, their families and the wider community.
Underpinning RISE’s social impact strategy are two main strands:
- To evidence the impact of RISE’s services
- To improve the effectiveness of RISE’s services
- A culture of continuous improvement and development/enhancement of services
- Improved staff engagement in service design and quality
Increasingly, local authorities and other statutory agencies are looking at social value when tendering for all size contracts as well as goods and services. RISE is committed to demonstrating social return on investment for local authorities and other public services.
Monitoring and measuring our social impact will allow RISE to continue to improve and adapt its services. We aim to positively contribute to improving the lives of the most vulnerable and victimised groups in our society, including victims of crime, children, offenders, and those with complex social needs.
After completing a Domestic Violence Perpetrator Programme with RISE, we asked service users how useful they found different aspects the programme:
Very useful in understanding their offence or behaviour
Very useful in helping them deal with their problems
Very useful in helping to prevent them reoffending
