About this event

Social Value is for everyone, and so is our Members Exchange ‘MemEx’ Conference! This booking page is for the in-person event, if you want to purchase tickets for the online event, please book separately here.

Come and join us to envision ‘The Future of Social Value’.

Social Value UK, along with our members and partners, will dive-into a range of social value topics and themes to help us all to take the next steps towards a shared future of social value driving decisions for more equality, improved wellbeing, and greater environmental care. Social Value is ever more critical as we collectively face growing interconnected social, environmental, cultural, and economic challenges and need new and innovative thinking to tackle these. We are 10 years on from the implementation of the Social Value Act, much has been achieved in understanding standards and practice development but a much greater shift is needed to meet the needs of the next 10 years. So let’s come together with content developed by and with the SVUK membership to lead the way in the Future of Social Value.

How and who for:

The conference is running both online and in person , on Thursday 15th September, to allow people to join however best for them. Some session content will be repeated online on Friday 16th September. This booking page is for the in-person event, if you want to purchase tickets for the online event, please book separately here. Your in-person or online ticket will also provide access to additional 'fringe' online sessions before and after the main event. We will keep you informed of these via your booking.

At MemEx we take full advantage of the skills and knowledge from the membership to enable peer-learning, whilst also creating a wealth of resources, and a warm welcome, for non-members.

Making it accessible and 'Pay it forward' ticket:

It is important that we keep costs and ticket prices as low as possible so that our events are accessible to all our members. This is especially important for our civil society organisations, who represent not just their organisations but communities too and play an integral part in the creation and measuring of social value.

Please consider purchasing a 'pay it forward' ticket at the checkout so that we can issue free tickets to charitable, CIC or similar status organisations.

If you are an organisation with charitable, CIC or similar status, then please apply for your free ticket here.

In the event that a Pay it Forward ticket is not utilised, we will absorb the costs into our work with our civil society members.

We also strive to make this event accessible to anyone with specific requirements, please let us know on your booking form if you have any requirements and we will make reasonable adjustments.
