Seminar Wednesday 1 March 2023 in Belfast, 9.00am for 9.30am start to 12.30pm

Venue – The National Football Stadium, Windsor Park, Belfast

(Free Tour of the Stadium included)

For several years Social Enterprise NI has been lobbying the NI Assembly to establish social value legislation in NI. We have looked enviously at the advances made in Scotland, England and Wales in the last 10 years and are delighted that Chris White, former MP and a leading light in bringing forward the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 in England and Wales is in Belfast on Wednesday 1 March 2023 and will be taking part in a seminar to discuss the impact of the Act to date.

Additionally, the morning will allow us to hear of progress in NI, discuss the issuance of Public Procurement Notes, scoring of social value, as well as hearing from case studies where private sector organisations have embraced social value as an integral part of their work.

This year has seen an increase in the number of organisations who are learning how to embrace social value in their supply chains, and their desire to be involved with social enterprises as a means of delivering on their social value commitments. Social Enterprise NI is therefore delighted to be organising this Networking event to bring together private, public and social enterprise businesses.

Why attend?

You will hear directly:

  • How Social Value legislation has been accepted in England and Wales.
  • From local supporters of social value across the private sector, and their social enterprise partners, who will tell of how embracing social value has been beneficial to both parties.
  • The seminar will also be thought provoking as to what the next steps are in working together to build and develop social value.
  • Our Keynote speaker is Chris White, author of the Social Value Act 2012

I’m sure you will find it a morning that will be of great value. Registration is via the following link  .

We look forward to seeing you on 1st March 2023.

The event is free to Social Enterprise NI members with a small charge for other organisations.
