Kingston Smith guides organisations towards social value excellence

Kingston Smith Fundraising and Management (KSFM), in collaboration with Social Value UK, has launched a customisable social value policy document. This downloadable policy template that organisations can fill in themselves, following guidance notes, is an essential jigsaw piece for organisations wanting to formulate, embed and manage social value practices.

Karl Leathem, director of impact at Kingston Smith, said: “It’s exciting for KSFM to partner with Social Value UK because they are the national membership network for social impact and together we are exploring how organisations can increasingly account for social as well as financial value. This DIY social value policy template will help organisations become better at internally managing, and ultimately maximising, their social value. It guides organisations through the what, how, who and when with tips on key areas requiring consideration and decision making to better account for value.”

Ben Carpenter, CEO of Social Value UK, said: “We are trying to help organisations start their journey towards better measurement and management of social value. KSFM’s impact team is very experienced in this area, so we’re delighted that they’ve designed a policy template that any organisation can tailor to their needs.”
