This programme will give you a deeper understanding in to the topic of Social Value, to help your business understand the impacts it can have on communities and how it can play a part in helping you to win more work or access public funding.


Social Value gets us to think about how our businesses can support 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 and why Social Value is becoming an ever-larger part of the evaluation criteria for public sector contracts/funding and how to respond to this. The programme will cover:

  • What is social value?
  • Legislation around social value
  • Why is it important for your organisation?
  • Social Value Strategy & Policy
  • Social Value Measurement & Reporting
  • Best Practice of Social Value in Greater Manchester
  • Q&A

Attendees will gain an understanding of the definitions and legislation around social value and why it is important that social value is embedded into an organisation’s strategy and way of working. The attendees will also understand the various ways social value can be measured/reported through the most common frameworks. Attendees will learn how to put together a social value strategy/policy document and best practise case studies.
