Content:

It is a common practice for the social service sector to conduct service evaluation for accountability reporting and service development, but only a few agencies will demonstrate their outcomes of their interventions with social perspective. Therefore, in collaboration with the Universityof Hong Kong, project donors and organizers, HKCSS had attempted a number of SIAs to articulate the social impacts of service projects. In 2014, our Guidelines and Protocol outlining the conceptual framework on SIA and delineating the principles, guidelines, and protocol of conducting SIA were launched.

To take one step forward, HKCSS would like to forge a platform for SIA case sharing to encourage NGOs and their practitioners to think about their projects in terms of social impacts and to actively conduct SIA on their projects in particular those related to the youth.

 

Training contents:

  • Basic concepts and principles about SIA
  • SIA Framework developed by HKCSS and ExCEL 3, HKU
  • SIA in specific service contexts
  • Procedure and implementation process of SIA
  • Outcomes and Measurements
  • Lessons learnt and tips for NGOs to conduct SIA

 

In the workshop, participants can expect to learn :

  • To help NGOs and their practitioners interested in impact articulation to grasp the methodological
  • principles and steps of SIA in more realistic terms through examining individual cases of SIA
  • To introduce new materials, resources, tools and create network of interested parties for NGOs’ use for SIA
  • To guide social service workers to identify what outcomes of their projects should be and understand how to effectively measure them

Content:

Since 2010, The Hong Kong Council of Social Service embarked on a new initiative to explore how social impact assessment (SIA) of service projects or programme could be promoted in the Third Sector in Hong Kong. In collaboration with project donors and organizers, HKCSS has attempted a number of SIAs to articulate the social impacts of service projects. As a result of these attempts, a framework and a methodology for SIA are emerging. The purposes of this workshop series are:

  • To help NGOs and their practitioners interested in impact articulation to grasp the methodological principles and steps of SIA in more realistic terms through examining individual cases of SIA;
  • To introduce new materials, resources, tools and create network of interested parties for NGOs’ use for SIA;
  • To engage NGOs and their practitioners to contribute to the framework and methodology being developed with reference to the actual service experiences in Hong Kong

In the workshop, participants can expect to learn

  • Basic concepts and principles about Social Impact Assessment (SIA)
  • SIA Framework developed by HKCSS and ExCEL, HKU
  • SIA in specific service contexts
  • Procedure and implementation process of SIA
  • Lessons learnt and tips for NGOs to conduct SIA
