Social Value

Local Authorities (including Cheshire East Council), Clinical Commissioning Groups and a number of VCFSE organisations are now signed up to the Cheshire and Merseyside Social Value Charter.

The Charter is supported by a network of Social Value Champions, with the aim of maximising the opportunities for Social Value locally.

The Social Value Charter and Network of Social Value Champions is part of a wider programme being led by the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership, who have been identified as a Social Value Accelerator site by NHS England and NHS Improvement.

The new Social Action Partnership Service is providing leadership in developing the Social Value Charter and activities within the VCFSE sector through the Social Action Partnership.

Social Value Award (Kite Mark)

A Social Value Award is currently being developed through the Cheshire and Merseyside Social Value Accelerator Site and the Social Value Network.

The Social Value Award aims to help organisations achieve their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and to deliver Social Value, as well as setting a standard for Social Value and showcasing good practice in this area.

The Award will be open for the public sector, private sector and the VCFSE sector to apply to.

The Cheshire East Social Action Partnership Service is providing leadership for the development of the Social Value Award across Cheshire East.

Supporting Business and Industry

A key opportunity exists for us to build connections between business and industry who want to achieve their CSR, with VCFSE sector organisations that may benefit from the resources, skills, knowledge and experience of the private sector, therefore creating a mutually beneficial collaboration.

The Cheshire East Social Action Partnership is developing partnerships between the VCFSE sector and business and industry, helping to identify community and VCFSE needs, and helping broker support into VCFSEs by supporting business to deliver their CSR and social value commitments.

If you are a business and want to find out more or help in delivering social action and social impact in Cheshire East communities, please get in touch.
