Build your Social Value - Now!


  • What size of organisation is this for?

    This programme works best for SMEs with between 5 and 250 employees. You're at the size where you have some policies, systems and processes in place but are likely to have gaps. This programme will help you identify where those gaps are.

  • Which areas does the programme cover?

    It covers six key areas: Governance; Customer, Supplier, Employee and Community Inclusion; and Environment.

  • Is this a DIY course or can I get your help?

    This course gives you the framework to identify, build and measure your social value and is priced accordingly. If you feel you would benefit from expert support in delivering workshops, focus groups or creating your plan, email us at

  • You've said that this course will take us ten hours. Does that mean we can complete it within a week?

    It's unlikely that you will complete this programme within a couple of weeks. You will need to consult internally and externally so expect to work on this for 3-6 months period with around 10 hours of admin time (not including meetings).

Anj Handa

I'm Anj, Founder of Inspiring Women Changemakers. When I launched a high-profile legal & media campaign journey in 2014, I had no idea that it would lead to being featured in the global media, books & campaigns. It taught me the skills I want to pass on to you. My focus on social impact & inclusion started way before 2014 though. From 2003-2011, I worked in employment & skills policy and practice and have spoken internationally about the subject. I've set up many multi-sector partnerships & have advised on investments of up to £50m. Trained in public speaking, media handling and Good Governance, I was one of Grant Thornton UK’s 100 Faces of a Vibrant Economy in 2018 and AFSA's Award winner for Positive Action in 2017. When I’m not running IWC, I Chair an arts organisation and am a university Governor. In other words, I have a lot to share!
