Social impact

Through our social impact programme we aim to understand the relationship between agroecological businesses and the people connected to them, whether as customers, employees, volunteers or suppliers.

Our social impact grants are available to LEAP-funded enterprises, and support activities which broaden the social impact of individual businesses. We work together to develop straightforward and usable plans for measuring impact, using the Social Impact Toolkit developed in partnership with Coventry University’s Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience.

Alongside these projects, we deliver research activities including surveys and direct contact work with customers, paid staff, and volunteers with community food businesses, exploring social impact themes first set out in the Food For Thought social impact report.
