Event description

Description

The first National Social Value Conference will focus on BRIDGING THE GAP between the public, private, voluntary sectors and communities, identifying the challenges and opportunities for working together to build a stronger and a more resilient society.

The event has been designed to ensure that there is an opportunity to learn from tailored and high quality content, but also to contribute to the development of a broader social value agenda for both public and private sector organisations.

Key note speakers include the new Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, the CEO of Trafford Council, Theresa Grant, Jonathon Porritt OBE, Founder Director of Forum for the Future, Ben Marson, Director of Partnerships at the Prince’s Trust, and Rt. Hon. Hazel Blears, a leading member of the National Advisory Board on Impact Investing.

Following the key note panel, the National Social Value Taskforce will be releasing the National Framework for Social Value Measurement which will establish a single methodology for measuring and reporting social value.

After this, there will be 4 sessions each repeated twice giving you a chance to attend 2. The sessions have been designed to provide practical advice and guidance.

  • Session 1 - Innovation and Best Practice - What does GOOD look like? We will present innovative case studies to show case emerging best practice covering commissioning, procurement and supplier engagement.

  • Session 2 - National TOMs Framework and Social Value Measurement. Social Value Portal and Social Value UK will present the detail behind the National Measurement Framework and discuss how broader community stakeholder engagement may improve outcomes.

  • Session 3 - Bid Management. This session has been tailored specifically for businesses that want to learn how to maximise their social value score and win more work.

  • Session 4 - Legal and Local. This session will help demystify the do’s and don’ts of social value procurement. It will be practical and specific and provide guidance to all those who are struggling to understand how to implement the Act.

Key Note Speaker – We are delighted to welcome Andy Street, newly appointed Mayor of the West Midlands Combined Authority. Andy will tell us about his vision for the West Midlands and how embedding social value into procurement and contract management is an essential tool in delivering better value to the region.

After lunch, there will be four sponsored deep dive syndicate sessions:

Health, Wellbeing and Social Value. This session will help identify the key steps that need to be taken to embed social value into the health sector. The session will look at the specific challenges faced by the health sector in embedding social value into procurement and opportunities for the health sector to partner with local organisations to deliver better value.

Speakers include Dr James Kingsland OBE, President of the National Association of Primary Care, Simon Brake, Chief Executive of the CCG for Walsall, Jerome Baddeley from NHS SDU, Graham Precey, Head of Corporate Responsibility & Ethics at Legal & General and Chief Fire Officer for the West Midlands, Phil Loach.

Integrating Social Value into Planning adnd Development. If social value were integrated into the planning system it could deliver an additional £15bn in additional value. Despite this fact, planners and developers are struggling to find common ground and a common language to discuss and agree measures that deliver additional social value. This session will explore how this opportunity can be unlocked and how our planning system may be updated to ensure Social Value is included as a prerequisite for permission.

Speakers include Guy Battle, CEO Social Value Portal, David Green, Delta Planning, Alan Sarjant, Senior Vice President, Prologis and Julie Venn-Morton, Skills and Growth Manager at Coventry City Council and Rachel Wolliscroft, Head of Sustainability at Wates.

Social Value and the Devolution Agenda. Devolution offers the opportunity for public sector organisations to develop longer term strategies and partnerships to solve some of the more difficult challenges in their region. This session will run by members from the West Midlands Combined Authority and will look specifically at how organisations can collaborate and develop stronger supplier partnerships as well as exploring the potential of cross border collaboration to meet the greatest needs.

Speakers inclide Roger Forsdyke, Managing director for Construction in the Southern Counties at Willmott Dixon, Rachael Morgan, Head of Procurement WMCA and Peter Schofield, AGMA Procurement Hub Programme Manager at Trafford Council.

Delivering Social Value through EffectiveFrameworks. Frameworks offer a unique opportunity to develop longer term private/public sector partnerships, but there remain significant challenges to making this a reality. This session will look to identify and solve these challenges including the tailoring of local priorities and retrospective commitments for suppliers. It will show case some of the best practice frameworks and examine the key steps to ensure success and avoid failure.

Speakers include David Boyer, CEO of Warrington Council, Alison Ramsay, Frameworks Coordinator, John Simons Head of Procurement and Audit at Scape Procure. The session will be chaired by the managing director of SCAPE, Victoria Brambini.
