We recently ran a Social Value Workshop in response to feedback from the local VCS.
Over the next few weeks we will be publishing the feedback and notes from the workshop, along with videos of the presentations.
In the meantime, you can download the presentations from our speakers below:
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?”.
