Organisations Supporting the ASVB Grant Program

ASVB User - New Zealand Treasury CBAx

The NZ Treasury encourages important public sector decisions to be informed by Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA). To help compare different options in New Zealand, the Treasury has developed a CBA tool called CBAx. CBAx is a spreadsheet model that contains a common database to help agencies monetise impacts and do return on investment analysis.

NZ Treasury has purchased an ASVB licence to use our 62 wellbeing values, and currently sub-licenses their use to a number of New Zealand Government departments.

For further information please follow the link to their CBAx information page or download the below CBAx Guidance.

ASVB User - Wayside Chapel

Wayside Chapel has been providing support to the most marginalised people in and around the streets of Sydney since 1964.

Today, under the banner of ‘Love over Hate’, Wayside provides a supportive environment where those that are homeless, dealing with mental health challenges, socially isolated or disconnected, can come and be part of a judgement-free community.

Wayside Chapel Case Study

Dr J. E. Cloutman from Riverina Community College examined the benefits of non-accredited training among community colleges in New South Wales for the NSW Department of Education.  His research focused primarily on the Adult and Community Education (ACE) program which targets those from a disadvantaged background who are interested in pursuing vocational education.

Dr Cloutman uses a mixed methods approach to explore a number of aspects relating to the ACE program. He utilises the ASVB to quantify the benefits to students, as well as broader social and community impacts that can accrue from non-accredited training.
