Please join us for the Transition Institute's publication launch on public service spin outs: Social Value Ethos.
Social Value Ethos is the result of discussions with our partners and network members.
It focuses on the journeys of a snapshot of the public sector entrepreneurs who have spun out their services; and looks at how they have used the change as a positive process to embed an ethos of social value across their staff and users.
For anyone who is considering joining this band of public sector leaders, we hope that this publication will help you both frame your change journey, as well as to map out crucial aspects of the potential journey ahead: learning from practitioners who have been where you are right now and taken the crucial next steps.
This publication is not intended as the definitive word on enshrining social value across the people who manage and deliver services. In fact, we want this paper to stimulate a conversation with practitioners, users and policymakers about what kind of public services we want and need, and how we can ensure that the principles of public service can be embedded into new public service spin outs.
