National Social Value Conference 2020
Join us on 29-30 January for the National Social Value Conference 2020 – Time to Act.
It’s been almost exactly 7 years since the Social Value Act was implemented in January 2013. Much has changed since then but still many organisations are still struggling to implement the requirements of the Act with over 55% of councils not having a social value policy. Central government is also behind the curve, although this seems to be about to change with the results of extensive consultation due in Autumn 2019 and a requirement for all central government departments to ‘account for social value’.
The good news is that real leadership is emerging across all sectors with the innovators delivering more value for their communities. This includes more local spend, more jobs for local people, better skills, less crime, healthier communities and more volunteering – better value for communities.
If you’re on the fence, it’s time to shake off your inertia; it’s Time to Act and make sure your communities do not lose out.
The National Social Value Conference 2020 will bring together professionals from across the public, private and third sectors to share what works (and what doesn’t), explore new ways of thinking and promote more collaboration and innovation to deliver more for our communities.
Over two days we will examine: How can the public sector be bolder? Is it possible for the private sector to do good? How do we unlock the energy of the voluntary sector? What works and what does not? How do we maximise social value?
Dates: 29th and 30th January 2020
Location: Etc. Venues, St Paul’s, Lodnon, EC1A 4HD
