As a way of assisting partners and maximising the creation of social value, the Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan Social Value Steering Group has developed a toolkit for commissioners, procurers and providers.

The toolkit was produced following a partnership workshop which also considered the Future Generations Framework for service design.


Designed for any person or team involved with commissioning, procuring or delivering services seeking to create social value, its aim is to highlight some of the great work going on within and outside of the Cardiff and Vale region, to help achieve a consistent approach to the understanding and maximisation of social value.


The toolkit is presented in four sections:


  • Understanding social value
  • Delivering social value
  • Demonstrating social value
  • Further resources on social value


It also contains case studies of good practice from across the region of social value in action.
