This half day Road Show is aimed at anyone who is interested in finding out more about social accounting and audit; as a way of measuring social value, improving your business practices, and being accountable to your investors, funders and commissioners. The SAN methodology is particularly aimed at organisations operating in the social economy – voluntary, community and social enterprise – SMEs wishing to develop their purposeful business or public sector organisations wanting to be more accountable for social value.
