Putting Social Value at the Heart of Public Services

Thursday 28th June 2012, 13.30 - 17.00

Trevelyan Hall, St Matthew's Conference Centre, 20 Great Peter Street, Westminster, London SW1P 2BU

Lead partner: Fusion21

Also kindly supported by: Selwood Housing


ResPublica are pleased to invite you to a half-day event which will explore the challenges currently faced by social enterprises, local charities and civic organisations in bidding for public services and new opportunities for partnership between civic organisations, local authorities, private businesses and the wider community.

The event will offer a forum to discuss how the Coalition’s proposals for public service reform engender huge opportunities for the stimulation of ‘social growth’, and how we can now shape truly transformative services and deliver a more localised social economy. Whilst cost efficiency is to a certain extent necessary for the improvement of public services, it is their social value that must be recognised and appreciated within the commissioning process. Delivering additional social benefits reaches beyond narrow targets, boosting communities’ and service users’ resilience and generating associational models of support. 
 
The event agenda is confirmed, with two excellent sessions hosting an array of expert speakers:

How can ‘social value’ be effectively integrated into public service commissioning?
  • Jon Trickett MP, Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office
  • Dave Neilson, Chief Executive, Fusion 21
  • Rebecca O'Neil, Head of Communications and Marketing, Selwood Housing
  • Lord Adebowale, Chief Executive, Turning Point
  • Caroline Julian, Senior Researcher and Project Manager, ResPublica (Chair)

How should we measure or demonstrate ‘social value’ at a local level?

  • Chris White MP, Sponsor of the Public Services (Social Value) Bill
  • David Tyler, Chief Executive, Community Matters
  • Sarah McCoy, Senior Researcher, SROI Network
  • Jane Dudman, Editor, Guardian's Public Leaders Network (Chair)
  • Kate Markey, Deputy Chief Executive, CAN 

The event will be held on Thursday 28th June 2012, from 13.30 - 17.00, at Trevelyan Hall, St Matthew's Conference Centre, 20 Great Peter Street, Westminster, London SW1P 2BU. 
 
Refreshments will be served. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The event is by invitation only, however if unable to attend please feel free to circulate this to your colleagues.

This event will emerge as an output from our Models and Partnerships for Social Prosperity workstream, one of the three core workstreams of the ResPublica Trust. For further information or to request an invitation, please do not hesitate to contact Annalisa Plachesi, Events and Partnerships Co-Ordinator, at annalisa.plachesi@respublica.org.uk

ResPublica

ResPublica is an independent, non-partisan UK think tank founded by Phillip Blond in November 2009.  In July 2011, the ResPublica Trust was established as a not-for-profit entity which oversees all of ResPublica's domestic work.  We focus on developing practical solutions to enduring socio-economic and cultural problems of our time, such as poverty, asset inequality, family and social breakdown, and environmental degradation.

We have had demonstrable success with innovative research that has been seen to make an impact on the policy landscape.  Our reports have received widespread acclaim from policy-makers and practitioners, the media, and politicians from both sides of the political spectrum.  We regularly host events and discussion forums that facilitate debate and extend our outreach. ResPublica is also a membership organisation, offering personal membership packages as a means for interested and like-minded individuals to engage with ResPublica in a way that is tailored to their own interests.
