Social value services

Pioneering social value in social housing

We help housing providers, their suppliers and partners understand and implement social value measurement and to use social value as a tool to inform decisions. Our Social Value Bank positions UK Housing at the leading edge of demonstrating the social value create.

What problems can we help you solve?

Demonstrating value for money remains a priority for the housing sector. HACT, together with Simetrica, created the Social Value Bank – the largest bank of methodologically consistent values to measure the impact of activities from employment through to health. The methodology is now widely used across the sector and beyond. By working with HACT Value, housing providers learn how and where social value is generated most effectively, from in-house projects to the value generated by the supply chain.

What services do we provide? 

  • Training and strategic consultancy on the Social Value Bank to understand how to robustly deploy the methodology and how to use Value Insight, our web-based reporting tool.
  • Expert advice and certification of results to implement social value measurement and to feed into Value for Money Statements.
  • Cutting edge conferences and masterclasses to keep up to date with social value developments and good practice.
