In-depth examinations of successful public service partnerships, described by partners involved PLUS analysis from experts and Q&A. Watch the recordings here.

Our comprehensive webinars feature powerful examples of public authorities and social enterprises delivering high quality services through genuine collaboration between organisations and with communities.

Using social value principles to commission services and for community wealth building – webinar

How can public authorities ensure social value imperatives are at the heart of commissioning local services?

How can they harness the power of local anchor institutions to enhance the economic and social wellbeing of local communities?

Do we measure what really matters when it comes to social value, and can we ensure public service is dedicated to social value, rather than delivering a small number of marginal, additional benefits?

This webinar features examples of ground-breaking work by London & South East Education Group (which has embedded social value measurement and management to maximise the wider benefits of education and community impact) and Oldham Council (where every council policy decision starts with consideration of local needs and social value).

The children’s services market is not fit for purpose, does not meet the needs of children at risk and looked after children, and is under investigation by the Competition and Markets Authority.

  • the ground-breaking Children’s Innovation Partnership created by Leicestershire County Council and Barnardo’s
