Measure and Mange your Social Value – North Wales Scheme
Mantell Gwynedd, the County Voluntary Council in Gwynedd, has been working closely with organisations since 2015 to measure and manage their social value. In 2017, they were successful in receiving Big Lottery funding through the Third Sector Skills fund. In partnership with Medrwn Môn, Community and Voluntary Support Conwy (CVSC), Denbighshire Voluntary Services Council (DVSC), Flintshire Local Voluntary Council (FLVC) and the Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham (AVOW), we will ensure that your local CVC will be able to advise and support you in measuring your social value moving forwards.
As part of this funding, there is an exciting opportunity for 30 organisations (5 from each county in North Wales) to measure and manage their social value. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with your local CVC and Scoial Value Cymru to measure your impact in order to demonstrate the changes you are creating in people’s lives. As well as this, they will work closely with the Management Committee to ensure that the social value identified by your clients and beneficiaries is useful to how decision are made.
With the new legislative framework in Wales, this is an opportunity to show how your organisation adheres to the main principles of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 by ensuring that your clients are central to everything that you do and are involved in your decision making,
Although this isn’t a financial grant, the support available is a great investment in your organisation. Therefore, please read the guidelines carefully and if you wish to apply please send us a completed application form along with a copy of any documents required.
The closing date for application is 5p.m. on Friday 16th March 2018.
