This event is aimed at housing providers who are interested in potentially working together to scope a suite of values relevant to care and support activities. At this roundtable, we'll hear from HACT's Deputy Chief Executive, Andrew van Doorn, followed by an open discussion about your priorities, the services you deliver, and how we can work together to improve the evidence base around your care and support services.
Care and support is a significant area of work for many housing providers. As noted in the recent HACT and NHF publication, the ability to evidence the value of these activities will become more important as housing providers strive to deliver these services with less resource, including crisis care, early intervention and support activities. These activities are business critical and, as a significant part of the support delivered by housing providers, it is vital that housing providers can evidence the work they do and measure the outcomes achieved in a consistent way.
Our Social Value Bank has been widely adopted in the sector and housing providers are now able to measure and communicate the value of community investment activities. Along with looking at how social value can be created and measured in the supply chain, the creation of values for the health impacts of community investment activities, and the creation of values for moving people from street homelessness into temporary accommodation or secure housing, HACT is developing a new phase of work to generate values to better evidence the impact of a range care and support activities and outcomes.These new values will be methodologically-consistent with existing values within the Social Value Bank.
