Stone Soup Consulting pays particular attention to its ultimate objective of achieving societal impact. In oder to achieve this objective, we are members of two of the largest international social value networks in the world: The European Venture Philanthropy Association and Social Value International.
Social Value International is the global network focused on social impact and social value whose members share a common goal: to change the way society accounts for value.
All too often key decisions about resources and policies are made using a limited economic concept of value, which fails to consider important effects on people and the environment. As the gap between rich and poor increases and the effects of climate change become more apparent, the work of this network has never been more urgent.
Social Value International works with its members to embed core principles for social value measurement and analysis, to refine and share practice, and to build a powerful movement of like-minded people to influence policy.
This pioneering community contains members from 45 countries, drawn from a huge range of different sectors and disciplines. Social Value International is much more than a professional network, it is building a movement for change.
