Making the case through Social Value
Make more of what you’ve got!
Social value offers a way for organisations to show the true impact of their work. We promote ways of valuing all changes that people experience. Government agencies and others, more often now, see the benefit of considering social value when services are commissioned or assessed. We developed approaches to work with clients to identify, calculate and prove social value. We advise or give our clients the tools and understanding to collect good quality evidence in a cost-effective way. We apply the key principles of Social Return on Investment, recognised as best practice for social value accounting. Our clients find that working with us to measure social value delivers much more, providing a means of:
- building internal capacity;
- improving performance;
- directing resources more effectively;
- showing the difference that you make; and
- securing additional funds.
The Social Value Self-Assessment Tool
The Social Value Self-Assessment Tool is a free tool designed to help users judge how well they are measuring and reporting on their social value, in line with the Principles of Social Value. It was created by us in collaboration with Social Value UK. The tool is comprised of a seven-stage questionnaire, showing results as a spider chart illustrating areas of strength and areas for improvement. Why not try it out.Like the sound of that - Get in touch
