NAYBA has developed a tool to measure and report the collective social impact of the Church in local communities – we call it the NAYBA Impact Audit.
The approach, and the data it provides, has helped to bring together churches of all denominations, transform the relationship between churches and civic leadership, and positively shift perceptions about the role and value of the church in society.
NAYBA Australia recently conducted an audit for the City of Frankston – the first in Victoria – and the results are impressive, to say the least:
- Almost $4.3 million in social impact value to the Frankston community annually
- Over 30,000 people in need served in the past year – nearly a quarter of the total Frankston population
- 53 ongoing community service activities, addressing 12 of the greatest social needs in the region
