Proposed Approaches to Social Impact Measurement  (12/01/2015)

Catalog N. : KE-04-14-665-EN-N

Money invested in a social enterprise should be used efficiently in delivering its social mission. Also, where public funding is used, efficient delivery of outcomes or savings in public spending must be demonstrated. A consistent way of measuring social impact is therefore needed. In October 2012, a Social Impact Measurement expert sub-group was set up by the GECES (“Groupe d’Experts de la Commission sur l’Entrepreneuriat Social”) in order to advise on a methodology which could be applied across the European social entrepreneurship sector. This helps social fund managers decide whether they will invest in a particular enterprise and will help investors and grant givers see if the enterprises they have backed have achieved their stated social objectives, but is also of wider application, both internally and externally. This publication sets out the proposed approaches to measurement used for assessment and follow-up.

Facing the crisis - The coping strategies of unemployed people in Europe  (27/11/2014)

Catalog N. : KE-04-14-928-EN-N

This report explores how those households that are particularly exposed to poverty and long-term unemployment manage to deal with the blows dealt by the economic crisis. It asks the key questions: is unemployment in a period of crisis really the cause of spiralling breaks in social links, or can it also be the start of a process of coping, based on strengthening those links? If so, to what extent? It draws on the findings of three studies, both qualitatively and quantitatively. This publication is available in printed and electronic format in English.

Adequate social protection for long-term care needs in an ageing society  (10/10/2014)

Catalog N. : KE-04-14-706-EN-C

This report examines to what extent innovative approaches to social protection against the risk of long-term care dependency - such as prevention, rehabilitation and support for the independent living of frail older people - can help EU Member States ensure that adequate provisions for long-term care needs can be organised in a sustainable way even at the height of population ageing. It argues that national policy makers should move from the present primarily reactive to an increasing-ly proactive policy approach seeking both to prevent the loss of autonomy and thus reduce care demand, and to boost efficient, cost-effective care provision.

Published by the Social Protection Committee (SPC), the report identifies promising innovative approaches around the EU and suggests how the the Union can support the efforts of Member States by facilitating the exchange of best practices, by researching and testing new solutions and fostering technical and social innovation.
