Whanau Waipareira and Australian-based Net Balance will host a conference in September at Whanau Centre in west Auckland, to help organisations measure the impact they make. Net Balance, in partnership with new economics foundation from London, the Centre for Social Impact and Waipareira, will provide the 2 day Accredited Social Return On Investment (SROI) training to help understand, measure and report on the social, environmental and economic value created by your programme or organisation.
SROI is an internationally recognised approach for understanding and measuring the impact of a programme, organisation or policy. Through engaging with stakeholders, you can identify the social, environmental and economic benefits generated and place a financial value on this impact.

Team Waipareira sprang into action on Sunday to raise money and kai for the whanau.
More than 100 whanau braved the wintery conditions to support an amazing kaupapa – the Waipareira Food Bank.
Nana, koro, mum, dad and the tamariki came to exercise at Western Heights Primary School in Massey and aid whanau less fortunate.
The fundraiser was initiated by whanau who attend Waipareira's weekly community fitness programmes, run out of the Trust Stadium. These three amazing people knew that they wanted but also had to do something to also support whanau in need, so they did exactly that...they organised an event, "the kaimahi from Waipareira do amazing mahi for whanau out in the community, this was our way to support what they do..paying it forward."
So what better way to get the message out than a Fit-A-Thon?
