Forthcoming FREE workshop on social value

As part of our Barrow Cadbury Trust-funded project on Social Value, we will be holding a major FREE workshop for social enterprises and commissioners involved in implementing the new legislation.

This will take place in May or early-June.

The likely theme of the workshop will be “Evidencing Social Value: The Elephant in the Room”.

We want to build on what we have learned about the practical implementation of the social value Act amongst local authorities (especially key partner Birmingham City Council) and provide a free opportunity that will:

  • Update social enterprises on where things are at with social value.
  • Reflect on the practical implications of social value in commissioning.
  • Examine the likely evidencing requirements.
  • Find out more about how we can best help social enterprises rise to the challenge of social value.


If you would like to reserve a place at this workshop send mail to Alun Severn.

Following on from this workshop we will also be offering further support around social value for social enterprises and trading third sector organisations, and this will include more intensive support and surgery-style sessions. Watch this space.
