Maximising Positive Social Impact – South Tyneside and Peopletoo
South Tyneside Council and Peopletoo (Affiliate Members) are leading a policy lab on maximising Positive Social Impact.
This project is aimed at delivering improved positive social impact, that is broader than merely ‘social value’ and formal procurement approaches which have already been developed.
We are exploring how positive social impact can be maximised through embedding a council-wide approach across to delivering social outcomes. We have come across some fantastic examples but these tend to be isolated from a broader approach. Delivering positive social impact does not need to cost more – instead this project aims to outline how Councils can deliver better outcomes for each £ spent and through their operations, governance and cultures.
As part of this project, we will be creating a publicly available library of best practice initiatives to share with the sector, a corporate framework and service level toolkits to promote the delivery of positive social impact.
