Social Value

Get the Social Value evidence you need to compete for investment, funding or contracts

The Social Value Act has the potential to transform the way public services are commissioned, requiring public bodies to consider choosing providers based on the social value created and not on cost alone.

It has never been more important for civil society organisations to demonstrate and evidence their social impact to benefit from the Social Value Act and changes to commissioning and procurement practices that are taking place in other socially responsible organisations where the Act is not a legal requirement.

Evidencing your Social Value doesn’t have to be complicated

Getting your head around all of the tools and techniques to evidence what you achieve can seem like an onerous task which can take up too much of your valuable time.

Not knowing where to start, what to use and how to make the exercise worthwhile are common reasons why organisations fall at the first hurdle.

We keep things simple and manageable for you. Our qualified practitioners use a range of techniques suited to different types and size of organisation:

  • SROI (Social Return on Investment)
  • Social Accounting & Audit
  • Outcome Stars
  • Stakeholder analysis
  • Evaluations

By capturing your impact you’ll learn more about how you operate, the improvements you can make and recognise your successes!

We can undertake impact measurement exercises for you or guide you through the process either one-to-one or as part of of an Action Learning Set.

Give us a call to discuss your needs or take a look at some of our Social Value case studies for how we’ve helped similar organisations to better understand their impact.
