Calculating the REturn on Investment if Volunteer Engagement for internal performance monitoring

Volunteer Squared is happy to be announce the launch of another free online resource for the volunteer sector: the Mission Points ROI calculator, designed to help you measure the Return On Investment associated with engaging volunteers at your organization.
The Mission Points ROI model treats the number of volunteer hours consumed by an organization, as an expense. Viewed as expenditure, we would value volunteer time in the same way that we value money: we would spend only to the degree necessary, to best reach the mission of our organization. Consuming more volunteer hours might mean more gets accomplished – or it may mean volunteer time is being wasted.
The Mission Points ROI model allows us to see volunteer contributions as an expense, and in turn encourages us to manage our incredibly valuable volunteer resources more effectively.
I invite you to explore further, by downloading the Mission Points ROI manual, and giving the concept a try at If this sounds interesting to you, please feel free to share this information with your peers. As we develop the Mission Points ROI model further, we welcome as many suggestions as possible in order to improve and refine it as a vital Volunteer Management resource.

LBH Market Position Statement
Source By: LBH London Borough of Hackney

Increasing demand, greater numbers of personal budget holders and restricted local government expenditure herald significant changes to the social care market in coming years, according to Hackney Council’s first ever social care Market Position Statement (Word, 1.4KB).

London Borough of Hackney must respond to these changes by fostering a care and support supplier market fit to deliver services over the next 5-10 years.

Our Market Position Statement (Word, 1.4KB) is designed to foster a healthy supplier market by providing key intelligence to current and potential providers to help them:

- Make active business & investment decisions
- Respond to opportunities around self-directed support
- Avoid wasting resources on poorly targeted initiatives

Please find attached: Hackney's Market Position Statement. This was formally launched at our event at the Tomlinson Centre at 2pm on Thursday, 13th February.
