Draft social investment framework

Representatives from social sector agencies are working on a draft framework for social investment.

The focus of the Social Investment Framework [PDF, 1.1 MB] (SIF) is to identify all of the components underpinning and supporting a social investment approach, e.g.:

  • client-segmentation
  • use of an investment test
  • prioritisation methods.

Through a deeper understanding of components, agencies can identify what new or improved capabilities are needed to further enhance social investment performance, and the social outcomes that are generated for New Zealand.

This will lead to better alignment of work across the sector and improved clarity of communication to the public about social investment.

Further work is planned, including:

  • development of agreed descriptions for components
  • guidance on what defines high-performance for each component.

We want to hear from you

We're testing the framework within and across government, and welcome feedback from anyone interested in social investment work.

Suggested topics for your feedback include:

  • Does the description of 'what social investment is' make sense for me in my role?
  • Can I see, from the framework, what it means to apply a social investment approach?
  • Is the information useful, and is it easy to understand?
  • What extra information do I need for the SIF to be useful?

Please email your feedback to info@sia.govt.nz.
