New Guidance on Social Value and Compact

Compact Voice has published a new guide which provides an easy-to-understand overview of social value and the Public Services (Social Value) Act. The guide provides practical case studies and actions for commissioning authorities and voluntary organisations to take, as well as explaining what is covered by the Social Value Act, how it relates to the Compact, how to demonstrate social value and create a strategy for doing so.
