Value for money reviews of 3 leading social enterprise organisations in Wales

CMI conducted a value for money review and strategic review of the activities of three social enterprise infrastructure organisations on behalf of a core funder for each organisation – the Welsh Government.

The Wales Social Enterprise Coalition, Development Trust Association Wales and Social Firms Wales all provide services to both their member organisations in their particular areas of concern as well as policy advice and research services to Welsh Government in support of the Social Enterprise Action Plan 2009.
Our review included documentary review including of meeting minutes and member debates; stakeholder and partner interviews; community and social enterprise case studies and an analysis of the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of each organisation against their performance targets and objectives. Recommendations regarding future activities and funding were provided in each case.
