“Social value” is an issue that has risen in prominence since the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012, and is an issue that many companies had addressed previously and badged as ‘community benefit’, social sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
School Partners have prepared a briefing paper, aimed at their supply chain members, which explains what social value means to them, why it matters and how companies can generate social value. The briefing paper is intended to help supply chain members to help partners to meet client expectations around social value. It touches on issues such as legislation, impact and context, monetisation, metrics and indicators.
