Social Value

We have a particular area of specialism with respect to helping businesses maximise their social value and help them compete effectively for contracts through differentiating their social value offer.

Since the introduction of the Public Services (Social Value) Act which requires public agencies to take account of social value in procurement of its services there has been a growing understanding of the importance for potential providers to identify the social value they are creating.

Further in a society of ever-growing needs and pressing issues such as climate change consideration of social value contributes to greater wellbeing and improved civil society. Further if its planned well it does not necessarily cost more!

Our support to organisations includes training and consultancy support with respect to social value, procurement, measurement and maximising the return of the organisation’s activities.

We are trained social value practitioners and use a variety of tools and techniques to help organisations to assess and measure their social impact.
We’d love to talk to you how adopting strategic approaches to social value could be better for your business and for society!

Testimonials

Jon Whiteman

Director of Operations UK Sports Training
We had a meeting with Tim to help align our 3/5 year plan and strategy as a company. Tim is very knowledgeable and produced an in depth strategy document which included all of our mission statements, values and key KPI’s to focus on in a very timely fashion. Thank you, Tim and look forward to working with you in the future

Graham Morley

Senior Leadership Support Ltd
Tim has undertaken some consultancy work for me looking into apprenticeship provision. He did a great job and delivered the outputs I required with minimal supervision. He’s very knowledgeable and he rapidly gained the respect of those he worked with. His final report was full of the stuff I needed and devoid of stuff I didn’t. He’s great to work with and I’d recommend him without hesitation. If he says he can do something, he can.

Paul Medford

I worked with Tim for nine plus years in the social housing and training sectors. I have particularly valued Tim’s knowledge, strategic insight and diligence. Tim is a passionate believer in the social value businesses can generate to support better communities for all to work and live in

I worked with Tim over a number of years. As a line manager he was extremely supportive and as a colleague his positive stance to problem solving was always motivational. He leads by example and this shows in the high standard of results he achieves. Tim has a wide range of experience across housing, regeneration, social enterprise, the voluntary sector and education. These skills plus his commitment to drive social change will bring great benefit to any team or project.
