Member Webinar: Social Value – moving from the Act to action
When:6th July 2015 — from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Nick Temple, Deputy CEO at Social Enterprise UK (SEUK), will talk about progress on the Social Value Act since SEUK first advocated for it in the 2010 election. Two and a half years on from the act being passed, and practice emerging and developing across sectors, there is much to examine and discuss.
What is best practice in the field? What have been the key challenges in implementing the Act on the ground? Is it really making a difference to frontline organisations? How can more social value be created, and more effectively and consistently?
This webinar is particularly for any members interested in the effect of the Social Value Act, its relationship to public services commissioning, and how it is making progress in different parts of the social sector.
As a board member of Social Value UK, a member of the cross-sector health social value steering group, and convenor of the Social Value Summit, Nick will share his thoughts about what comes next, what to expect, and what we can all do to progress the field.

Prior to this Nick was working as an independent consultant with a whole host of organisations, including UnLtd, Skills Third Sector, the Guardian, Venture Partnership Foundation, Stepping Out, British Council and the London School of Economics.
