Social Value Bank: Practice Notes

Social Value Bank: Practice Notes

Published: October 2014

Author: Lizzie Trotter

When we launched the UK Social Value Bank, we knew it was a work in progress rather than a final product. We were ready to learn from people applying these values in their organisations and thank you to those who have asked questions and provided feedback. We have been taking notes during our masterclasses, phone calls and from emails with you and these have led to considerable progress.

We produced these Practice Notes to capture and reflect all this learning to clarify, develop and build on the original guidance Measuring the Social Impact of Community Investment: A Guide to using the Wellbeing Valuation Approach. Please read these Practice Notes and adhere to them when applying the Social Value Bank either through the Value Calculator or Value Insight.

We are working with partners and Simetrica-Jacobs to develop the UK Social Value Bank.
