Social value policies grow at local level

A new report from Social Enterprise UK looks at how local councils in England are using the Public Services (Social Value) Act. One in three now routinely consider social value in their procurement and commissioning, and 1 in 4 (24%) have a social value policy.

See Social Enterprise UK news item, which includes download link for the ‘Procuring for Good: How the Social Value Act is being used by local authorities’ report (pdf, 591KB). Or Civil Society News article, which has a summary of key findings and recommendations.
