Discover the five principles of community investment and explore how these can be applied to your business.

Our framework provides companies with a clear system on how to evaluate their current activity and plan your community investment strategy and delivery journey. You will also build your knowledge about the range of approaches and tools for social impact evaluation.

Course objectives
Attendees will gain the skills needed to design and deliver an effective community investment strategy and programmes. Course groups will be small and the sessions interactive, enabling companies to benefit from one to one support from facilitators and engagement with their peers. By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify social issues that are most relevant to their business and most pressing to the communities in which they work
  • Work in partnership with communities
  • Plan and manage community investment
  • Inspire and engage employees, customers and suppliers
  • Measure and evaluate the difference community activity has made for their business and communities.

Course outline
The course will focus on the following topics:

  • Setting the context – the face of community investment now
  • The community investment journey, from beginner to advanced and beyond
  • The five principles of community investment, an interactive exploration of each principle supported with case studies
  • A brief introduction to the CommunityMark.

Who should attend?
The course is suitable for community investment and corporate responsibility professionals from companies of all sectors and sizes.
