Currently, we are finalising our next three year strategy to 2020 in which we will continue to develop our approach to social investment. Already we have a social investment element within our national Change that Lasts program, which is a cost-effective and evidence-based blueprint for transforming the multi-agency response to domestic abuse, changing professional behaviours and building on resources and responses that already exist within communities. We are confident that Change that Lasts will achieve measurable social impact, and that there is a wealth of innovation and excellent practice in the federation at local level, which will demonstrate both impact and social return. By planning both service development and funding options in parallel, we will ensure financial opportunity does not divert us from achieving the outcomes we set with our services and beneficiaries. Rather than starting with the question ‘what social investment projects can we do?’, we are examining the viability of social investment as we work up our strategy and Theory of Change.
