The Social Value Portal and DAC Beachcroft present ‘Making Social Value Work for Business,’ a morning workshop in Bristol on 02 June 2015. Speakers include The Cabinet Office and Knightstone Housing Authority.
The Public Sector (Social Value) Act 2012 which came into force over 2 years ago has the potential to transform how the Public Sector not only delivers its services, but also how it can work with the private and third sector in delivering improved social services.
Despite its obvious benefits many public sector bodies and businesses alike are struggling with the practical implementation of The Act.
The aim of this workshop is to:
- Provide a briefing on the Public Services (Social Value) Act – definitions, requirements and obligations
- Provide you with an understanding of how you can develop your own social value metrics and begin to measure your own social value impact
- Understand how Commissioning and Procurement can take the lead in creating change and delivering better value and social outcomes
- Provide working case studies to help establish good practice
- Understand how communities could be supported in developing their own Social Value Charters and how these could link with Public Sector Targets
- Investigate the link between Social Value, Integrated Reporting, and Integrated Thinking in the Boardroom
Who should attend?
- Public Sector Organisations wishing to understand how to develop their Social Value Policies, metrics, measures, and targets
- Suppliers and partners to the Public Sector wishing to position themselves as providers of choice through the integration of Social Value creation into their business models
- Third Sector Providers and Not-for-profit organisations seeking entry to the Public Sector marketplace and wishing to better understand how to the measure social value of their services that they provide
