Social value

The social value toolkit aims to maximise the social value, or social benefit from the procurement and commissioning of Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) programmes.

The LEP and its partners share a responsibility to ensure that public money delivers better outcomes, be they social, environmental or economic.


Social value toolkit (DOC 5MB)

The toolkit has been developed to encourage and support organisations involved in the delivery of LEP programmes to lever greater social value by integrating added value activity into procurement and commissioning processes.

The toolkit is aimed to be a practical guide to integrating added values outputs and outcomes, and provides a framework of indicative activities and also good practice case studies, as well as sources of support in Lancashire to help organisations deliver their social value commitments.

We hope that you will find the toolkit useful and hope that it will help to enhance the social value outcomes that we can collectively achieve.
