Economic Value

Social Return On Investment (SROI)

Looking at the impact of self-management interventions, "if all of the return were to be taken into account, the SROI ratio across the whole economy would be somewhere between 3.5:1 and 8:1" [23].

In other words, every pound (£1) spent on implementing an appropriate self-management intervention realizes a return between three and one half  (£3.5) and eight pounds (£8).
