Social Value Act 2012 – understanding its impact on your organisation

The Social Value Act, which comes into force in January 2013, affects all public bodies in England and Wales.

The Social Value Act calls for all public service commissioning to factor in social value. For the first time, all public bodies will be required to consider how the services they commission and procure might improve the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the area.
