Directory of Social Accounts
Examples of social accounts and documents to download
One of the principles of social accounting is that organisations should ‘be transparent’. We would always encourage the publication of social accounts or social impact reports.
SAN has collected information from a selection of organisations from the social economy from across the world that have kept social accounts. Some are ‘draft’ (unaudited) social accounts and some are published Social (Impact) Reports – but the authors have shared their documents on the basis that they can be used to help and inspire others.
The full collection of reports is located at our Virtual Learning Platform but we have made a selection available for you to download here:
Guide to Social Enterprise planning
SAN Director Alan Kay worked with colleagues at Community Business Scotland to write a Guide to Social Enterprise Planning.
Under the brand Just the Business, the Social Audit Network is now distributing the Guide in return for donations to the Social Enterprise Collection (archive) at Glasgow Caledonian University. The Guide, which only exists in electronic copy, combines the essential elements of business planning with the need for systems to track and account for social change.
For further details on purchasing this guide please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then send this to you, along with the 6 annexes, electronically by email.
SAN curates a collection of reports on the social economy, which are available at our Virtual Learning Platform. We have made a selection available for you to download here:
