Rethinking social value

Rethinking social value

'Social value' has been one of the buzz phrases in social policy and practitioner circles in recent years. It describes the concept that economic activity has social and environmental values for stakeholders, not just financial values.

In 2013 the Public Services (Social Value) Act made it a legal requirement that public authorities take into account this social value when choosing suppliers. But how can you measure and prove the social value you create?

In CRESR we're working with a range of different public and voluntary sector bodies on projects looking at how social value is created for different types of stakeholders, and the different ways that notions of social value can be measured and expressed.
