Demonstrating our Social Impact and Social Return on Investment is crucial. Since we started six years ago we’ve delivered over 750 golf sessions for families facing challenges later in life.
Every time we run a golf session, the positive impact on the lives of the families we support is clear to see. However, this is often not enough to convince our Healthy Ageing stakeholders to invest in and support our social mission.
That’s exactly why we’ve worked extremely hard to build a compelling, indisputable evidence base as to why our social enterprise is such a great investment for stakeholders in the Healthy Ageing economy.
I’m going to start by sharing and example of the DIRECT SOCIAL IMPACT and SOCIAL RETURN ON INVESTMENT report we produce every month. As you can see the £16.46 of direct social value we deliver for every £1 invested is very impressive.
Now for more great news. Sheffield Hallam University’s Sport Industry Research Centre recently produced an Impact Research Study for Golf in Society. As you know, our services support people living with chronic illness and their carers. That’s why we’re thrilled with the key findings of the research that provide further crucial evidence on how we transform lives.

So as you can see from the research, we’ve designed a social solution that improves the health and wellbeing of people living with chronic illness and their carers. It meets all the the key challenges facing our nation as we seek to find new ways to keep our ageing population happier and healthy for longer.
We passionately believe that our social mission can play an integral role in transforming the lives of our ageing population throughout the UK. NOw we have the evidence too. So, if you like what we do, how we do it and difference it makes then we’d love to hear from you.
