Who we are
Social Value UK is the professional body for social value and impact management.
As a member-led organisation, our mission is to change the way the world accounts for value. Our aim is to reduce environmental degradation and inequality and increase wellbeing for all. Social Value UK does this through standardising practice through the Principles of Social Value, brokering relationships and encouraging cross-sectoral collaboration, encouraging further accountability for impact, building a community of practitioners and encouraging innovation.
Social Value UK is a Joint Member Network of Social Value International, the global standard-setting organisation for social value and impact management.
Social Value UK works with our members to embed core principles for social value measurement and analysis, to refine and share practice, and to build a powerful movement of like-minded people to influence policy. Our goal at Social Value UK is to support, connect, and represent our members through training, knowledge-sharing and networking. Social Value UK is much more than a professional network. Together, we are building a movement for change.
Our Vision A world where organisations are accountable for their impact on people and where decisions are made to improve wellbeing, equality and the environment for everyone.
