How our consulting programmes set you up for lasting success

Our Director of Consultancy, Anna McChesney-Gordon, discusses the benefits of an effective Social Value strategy.

Consulting FAQs:

Our organisation has never measured Social Value before. Where do we begin?

Whatever the maturity of your organisation, our consultants help you at any stage of your Social Value journey. We’ll help with mapping your current social value initiatives and their potential, developing a Social Value strategy, analysing stakeholder needs and priorities, conducting benchmarking and corporate reporting whilst also delivering specialist advisory services around planning and asset management.

Can I buy consulting services without membership?

Yes, let us know what your needs are and we can design a bespoke consulting programme to suit.

How does a Local Needs Analysis help councils identify their Social Value needs?

The purpose of a Local Needs Analysis is to gain deeper insight into the  key Social Value needs and opportunities in a local area. This ensures that  Social Value activities can have a real and lasting impact. It also helps councils to focus interventions on a hyper-local level; after all, needs in one area of a local authority may be different to another.

Procuring councils can use these insights to inform suppliers’ bids and developers’ planning applications, and as a mechanism to deliver ‘place-based’ Social Value.

Ultimately, a Local Needs Analysis should help the council, as well as their suppliers, developers and stakeholders, to prioritise the Measures they will deliver against and partnerships that they engage with.
