Company Description

Social value is a rapidly developing approach to addressing societal challenges and aiming to create flourishing and sustainable communities and places. 

The Social Value Portal is a young London & Manchester-based Software as a Service (SaaS) business that works with public and private sector clients across the UK. We have a suite of user-friendly, online collaboration tools that enable our clients in the public, private and community and voluntary sectors to work together to deliver social value, based around an evidence-led social value measurement framework which we developed, called the TOMs (Themes, Outcomes and Measures). 

There are three essential components to our business, which are underpinned by the TOMs:

  • Managing, monitoring and reporting social value using the online Portal
  • Research & development of methodologies and products to support the Portal
  • Consultancy and advisory work with clients to assist in the development of social value strategies and approaches.
