How can we help Over 20 years of experience in delivering social value

The UK Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 has resulted in phenomenal momentum towards enacting social value amongst government, businesses and their stakeholders. For many sectors, it’s now a formal requirement to implement social value in their procurement strategies. Social value is an opportunity to move away from reducing the negative to enhancing the positive by making an impact on people’s lives.

Our team has an in-depth knowledge and experience of taking organisations on the social value journey. We support you all the way to deliver social value through partnerships within your supply chain, procurement and suppliers.


We support organisations through:

  • Developing a vision and strategy statement for social value based on PPN 06/20 guidance.
  • Using established monetisation factors, such as those proposed in the National TOMs framework and the HACT Social Value Bank.
  • Help in mapping risk and opportunities in social value from the procurement categories.
  • Meeting your customer requirements by understanding their proposition.
  • Developing a tendering approach for social value.
  • Evaluating social value offerings from tenders and recommending improvement on proposals.
  • Developing and delivering bespoke training and workshops for internal stakeholders, supply chains and suppliers (F2F training, virtual, blended model, e-learning modules.)
  • Comprehensive reporting. Including qualitative techniques and monetising social value by gathering granular data from projects and supply chains.
  • Team training and client services, as well as ensuring they report in a timely manner.
  • Provide advice on reporting metrics, indicators and performance management best practices.
  • Implementation support – as consultants, interims, secondees or outsourced provision
