Social Value Initiative Launches

We are pleased to announce the Social Value Initiative, a new suite of services and tools to help impact organisations, companies and commissioners to maximise social value.

Who is it for?

The Social Value Initiative is aimed at any organisation that delivers positive social impact through its activities, or that funds the delivery of social impact.

What is it?

The Social Value Initiative is a 5-step process for maximising social value. From Strategy & Design through to Maximisation, we will help your organisation to:

  • Impact Organisations: measure, communicate and improve the social impact you deliver, increasing your ability to compete for funding and deliver your mission.
  • Companies: design your CSR programme (based on internationally recognised ISO 26000 practices), then evaluate and report on the impact it delivers.
  • Commissioners, trusts & foundations: design commissioning and funding that maximises social value against your objectives, then evaluate and report on the performance.

The Social Value Initiative brings together The Good Consultancy's expertise in social impact, recognised industry practice from the unique ISO 26000 approach to social responsibility, and our unique partnership with Social Profit Calculator, an innovative tool for calculating social value.

What are the benefits?

The main benefits for charities and social enterprises:

  • Understand and communicate the impact you deliver to staff, stakeholders, donors and funders;

  • Make your project delivery more effective, making better use of your income to maximise social value;

  • Win more funding from sophisticated institutional donors by maximising and quoting social value in applications;

  • Measure and evaluate the impact that projects actually deliver.

Commissioners, funders and companies benefits:

  • Companies can demonstrate Social Value when bidding for public sector contracts;

  • Improved oversight, measurement and reporting of the Social Value delivered by CSR programmes, funding rounds and commissioning;

  • Easier to meet the requirements of Public Services and Social Value Act.


The first step is to give us a call so we can talk through your objectives and potential requirements.
