Add date here if needed. • Local providers can build a case that they really do add value which other providers cannot deliver • Commissioners are in a position to: • Identify which providers are able to deliver social value • Prioritise social value as a criteria for commissioning, because it can be assessed against other concerns • Have confidence about commissioning for social value because it is possible to articulate and evidence some of the more intangible benefits 34

  37. Summary NPC - title of the document (can be changed under view/header and footer. Add date here if needed. The Social Value Act is a great opportunity to embed what really matters at the heart of commissioning. Social value can be hard to pin down but there are ways to define and measure it that can give commissioners greater confidence. Local organisations are well placed, but will need to measure and evidence social value. There are lots of tools and resources out there to help—start with the easy things first.
