VODG (Voluntary Organisations Disability Group) have launched a practical resource that promotes increased cooperation between social care commissioners and providers. The guidance has been created in response to the fact that while there are resources to support commissioners to implement the Social Value Act, less guidance exists for social care providers.
The new toolkit reflects an approach to commissioning which creates maximum value for money from public spending by realising additional benefits from providers – at no extra cost to the public purse.
Harnessing social value is an essential route to tackling inequalities. VODG’s toolkit guides social care providers on how to demonstrate the added value that not-for-profit organisations deliver.
