Social Value is important because it gets us to think about how our businesses operate, consider how our businesses can add value to society/communities and how our businesses can impact on current issues in society, to improve the planet for future generations.
This programme will explain how Social Value is becoming an ever-larger part of the evaluation criteria for public sector contracts and how to respond to this.
The programme will be delivered over 2 days, covering:
- What is Social Value?
- Legislation around Social Value
- Why is it important?
- Social Value strategy & policy

- Best practice of Social Value in Greater Manchester

Attendees will gain an understanding of the definitions and legislation around social value and why it is important that the idea of social value is embedded into an organisation’s strategy.
