Social Value Act
Many of our clients need to be aware of the new Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 which calls for all public service commissioning to factor in social value. The new Act, which comes into force in January 2013, should give third sector organisations that can prove their social value an advantage when looking for public funding or tendering for public sector contracts. To find out more about this important change in legislation, how it will affect your organisation and social value measurement tools such as SROI, please see our Fact Sheets or contact us to discuss your needs further.
