Summary of Experience in Social Accounting and Audit

REAP have worked with Community Business Scotland Network to facilitate and deliver social audit training to three clusters of organisations in the North East of Scotland. The first cluster started in 2000 and included 8 organisations (including REAP), the second cluster started in 2002 and included 7 organisations and the third cluster which started in 2003 includes 7 organisations.

During this time REAP have produced two sets of social accounts, which has helped to shape the type of training and support offered to participants in our cluster groups based on our actual experiences of carrying out the process.

It has always been our intention to develop local capacity around social auditing, and we hosted a CBS training event in 2002 for people who had been involved in carrying out social audits and who were interested in gaining experience in chairing panel meetings.

I have chaired two panels prior to approval, both of which were mentored by John Pearce.

These were for BRAG Enterprises, Crosshill Business Centre, Main Street, Crosshill, KY5 8BJ

and Phoenix Community Stores Limited, The Park, Findhorn Bay, Moray, IV36 3TZ . (Tel 01309 690110)
