Social value seems heavily in the news today…
→ Social Enterprise UK has just published a new report called Communities Count: The Four Steps to Unlocking Social Value. This calls on more local authorities and housing associations to adopt written policies on social value and have a named individual to manage and oversee it. Third Sector Online covers the story here.
→ While Chris White MP — the man behind the social value Act — says that although it may not yet be fulfilling its full potential, this doesn’t mean that the legislation needs strengthening. What it really needs is more time for testing and trialling. Again, Third Sector Online covers the story here.
→ And Social Enterprise WM has introduced a new social value section to its website here.
