Gatherings are more than just a conference – the focus is on meeting people, networking, making friends, hearing from experts – and from those that ‘walk the talk’ – from folk who are all stages of their social accounting and audit journey.

SAN arranges the venue, invites speakers, facilitating the conversations and exchanges that happen as folk get together.

In recent years we have welcomed speakers from the Centre for Local Economic Studies, The Women’s Organisation, Big Society Capital, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, and the Big Lottery, for example….


In 2019, we welcomed Liz Tapner of SELNET Lancashire – the 2019 UK’s most influential woman in social enterprise – as our Keynote speaker. Before that we have enjoyed wise words and insights from Jeremy Nicholls, Hazel Blears, and Maggie O’Carroll.


In 2020, the Coronavirus Pandemic meant that we could only gather virtually – which we did in October and the full event can be re-watched below or at our You Tube Channel.


Watch a presentation by Anne Lythgoe on the role of social accounting and audit in Building Back Better, and case studies of social accounting through the coronavirus pandemic from Matthew Lanham, Penny Anderson and Marie Banu.


You can also re-live some of our previous Gatherings and videos which were made specially at our You Tube Channel.

Our next Gathering will take place on 20th May 2022 and will be held in person in Liverpool at 54 St James Street, home to the Women’s Organisation. Our Gathering will focus on Wellbeing and Social Accounting, and for further information please follow this link:


SAN Gatherings

SAN is a community, and each year we enable that community to come together through our annual Gathering.
