Social Value: Measuring the social impact of development


Social Value

Measuring the social impact of development

The concept of measuring the social or socio-economic impacts of investment has started to attract greater focus and attention within the development sector over recent years.
With the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 and the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 becoming firmly embedded within public procurement, this requires increasing consideration of how development can unlock social, economic and environmental benefits for different groups of society.

Leading organisations increasingly want to demonstrate specific evidence and tangible examples of the social return delivered on their investment, as part of a total impact approach to assessing their added value and social responsibility.
Social Value is our toolkit for helping clients assess the social contribution of their development projects.
