The Social Value Act: Implications for Local Government
Where:New Local Government Network, 7-8 Henrietta Street, London WC2E 8PS, United Kingdom
When:3rd July 2012 — from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM
SIAA is delighted to co-host a breakfast roundtable on the implications of the UK’s new Social Value Act for local government, jointly with the New Local Government Network (NLGN).
With the UK Social Value Bill reaching Royal Assent in March, demonstrating value is now a key issue for local government and other bodies. While some local authorities around the UK have already pioneered social value-led approaches to commissioning, most commissioning practices do not have the means and tools to fully consider thewider social benefits other potential providers can bring to the table.
This breakfast event will explore the practical changes local government will be required to make to their commissioning processes, and will also consider how ‘social value’ will be evidenced. What will be the baseline for commissioners under the new Act and what are the implications for new entrants and the third sector?
The roundtable will be chaired by Simon Parker, NLGN’s Chief Executive, with speakers including Jenni Inglis, Director at the SROI Network; and Sophia Looney, Director of Policy, Equalities and Performance at Lambeth Council. It will be attended by around 15 senior local government representatives and social impact professionals.
