"Social accounting and audit is a framework which allows an organisation to build on existing documentation and reporting and develop a process whereby it can acccount for its social, environmental and economic performance and impact and then draw up an action plan to improve and overall be accountable to its key stakeholders"
HHC’s first Social Accounts were audited and verified by an independent Social Accounts panel in September 2008 and published in conjunction with the financial accounts and annual report at the AGM in November 2008. In addition to the full accounts a summary version was also produced to enable those with an interest to see at a glance the aims of Highland Home Carers, its values and performance.
The project was found to be a great success and proved a useful tool for gauging the company’s impact on its main stakeholders and receiving vital feedback on performance and areas which require improvement.
