There are a number of routes to scaling social impact; our current focus is on replication. Replication refers broadly to taking your organisation, program or set of core principles to new locations. Our methodology is based on five stages of achieving scale through social replication. It is publicly available via our Social Replication Toolkit.
We are continuously applying this methodology across diverse sectors, geographies and cause areas. We‘ve helped shape the way leading global organisations and grassroots social ventures increase their reach, transforming the lives of those in need.
The Toolkit is designed to help organisations assess their readiness for replication and to provide practical guidance through our five stages to scale. See below for an introduction to the toolkit from CEO and Founder Dan.
The Toolkit was extremely helpful for us, especially as we went from a small-scale pilot to designing our scale-up strategy. The step-by-step guide really made tackling our big issues more manageable, and reminded us to start with our vision / impact statement to guide our work. It will become your best friend if you are a social enterprise flirting with the idea of social-franchising as a scale-up strategy.
