As you know, for several years now BSSEC has been working to support the practical implementation of the social value legislation.
While local authorities have made generally good progress in rising to the challenge of social value, it is now widely recognised that health is lagging behind — although there is some overlap between social value and outcomes-based commissioning, and social value and social prescribing.
As part of a forthcoming report/resource pack we are planning BSSEC is looking for social enterprises that are successfully evidencing social value outcomes in the delivery of health or health/social care contracts.
If you are involved in health or health/social care delivery, are working to a contract with clear additional social value outcomes included in it, and have adopted ways of evidencing this social value and agreed these with the commissioner, then we very much want to hear from you.
Alternatively, if you know of good examples amongst organisations you have some contact with, please let us know.
Other than briefing us on the details, this will not entail additional work for you.
