Social Audit Toolkit
The Social Audit Toolkit is the original manual on Social Audit and Accounting and when it was first printed in 1981 it introduced the idea of organisational social audits for social enterprises and all social objective organisations. The Toolkit comes with a set of practical exercise templates that can be used by organisations to undertake a social audit of their own practices.
The fourth edition 2008 of the Social Audit Toolkit has retained the basic rationale and main elements, but the terms and order of the process have changed. In some cases the process exercises have been up-dated. In this version, the Social Audit Standard has been changed back to the original four standards. The structure of the Social Audit process is as follows: Governance Statement; External View and Stakeholders; Internal View and Organisation; and, Social Accounting.
