Salford Social Value Toolkit

Salford Social Value Alliance have created a Toolkit of general and legal information, case studies and FAQs to help you get to grips with Social Value.

There is information for providers of services, voluntary and community groups, businesses, commissioners and procurement teams.

To take a look at our Toolkit click on the links or take a look at the downloads section for a summary and helpful checklist.

  1. What is Social Value
  2. Benefits of Social Value
  3. Doing Business and Providing Services for Social Value
  4. Commissioning and Procurement for Social Value
  5. Measuring and Evaluating Social Value

In this section you will also find ‘Testing the Theory’, the early work of the Salford Social Value Alliance that led to the development of this Toolkit.

The Salford Social Value Alliance is also a member of the Greater Manchester Social Value Network. To access GMSVN’s tools and resources click here.

We positively encourage you to download and use this toolkit, but if you are copying from it to support work in your area or organisation, please give credit to the Salford Social Value Alliance who developed this toolkit.
