Putting social value into commissioning

New from the Children’s Partnership Knowledge Bank, ‘The Social Value and Commissioning Toolkit’ clarifies the role charities can play in the commissioning process, and discusses how they can provide extra social value to public sector contracts.

The guide enables charities to demonstrate their impact by articulating how they provide social value and how they can start a dialogue with commissioners in their area, overcoming barriers which may prevent them from achieving their full potential to shape and provide public services.
