Realising Social Value: meaning, methods, measurement
This symposium is aimed at voluntary organisations and commissioners operating in the health and care sectors, particularly those engaged with children’s health.
Organised by the National Children's Bureau and FaithAction
The Social Value Act 2012 requires public authorities to have regard to economic, social and environmental well-being when commissioning public services. This provides an impetus for voluntary sector organisations to demonstrate their social impact. When NCB and FaithAction brought the voluntary sector and commissioners together during our Commissioning for Equality training programme, social value – realising it, measuring it and convincing others of its value – emerged among their top concerns.
You will learn:
- the meaning and importance of social value
- commissioner and voluntary organisation perspectives on the advantages and challenges of using social value as a measurement
- how to embed a culture of demonstrating social value in your work.
The symposium will be chaired by Daniel Singleton, National Executive Director of FaithAction.

- Councillor Stewart Stacey – Cabinet Member for Commissioning, Contracting and Improvement, Birmingham City Council
