Investing in Social Impact

'We are looking at how you can humanise social value and measure the expediential change that regeneration can have on someone’s life'. That’s what our director, Daniel May told React News in a recent article by Franciszek Bryk about ‘Why it pays to consider an investment’s social impact.’

Commenting on Socius’ recent announcement that it has been selected by London Borough of Sutton to work in partnership with Aviva to develop the world’s largest cancer life science district in Sutton, Daniel says: “I truly believe that we would not have landed the London Cancer Hub, in partnership with Aviva, if we were not serious about delivering social value. London Borough of Sutton, the landowner, recognised that it aligned with the council’s broader ambitions.”
