The Social Value of our Service
Supported by the Government and several national supported housing agencies, HACT (Housing Associations Charitable Trust) have created the largest bank of methodologically consistent and robust social values ever produced. The values can provide a basic assessment of social impact, provide evidence of value for money, and compare the impact of different programmes. They have produced a “Social Value Bank”.
MSHA has been able to use the HACT tools to apply values for every £1 spent on service delivery to determine social value, economic benefits to public services and the social impact, so for instance, every £1 spent on key working and one-to-one support (both formal and informal) equates to £86.31 of social value.
