We recently ran a Social Value Workshop in response to feedback from the local VCS.

Below you’ll find the feedback and notes from the workshop, along with the presentations:

What is Social Value?

Social value is a way of thinking about how scarce resources are allocated and used. It involves looking beyond the price of each individual contract and looking at what the collective benefit to a community is when a public body chooses to award a contract. Social value asks the question: “If £1 is spent on the delivery of services, can that same £1 be used to also produce a wider benefit to the community?”.
