Prepare for the social Value act

The social value act introduces a new statutory requirement for public authorities to have regard to economic, social and environmental well-being in connection with public services contracts let by public authorities and includes housing associations.

With the Act now law, the growing importance for tangible evidence regarding social and environmental impact is now a bigger issue than ever before, not just for organisations outwardly seeking to affect change in society but for any organisation or individual who wishes to be accountable for their work.
