Social Value Charter
Over the past few months MKCE has been working with key social enterprises who delvier in Health and Social care in MK. Thanks to support from Social Enterprise UK, IVAR and the Department of Health we are working to produce a Social Value Charter for commissioning. Milton Keynes Council has supported this work and a mapping of VCSE organisations is ongoing. Over 200 organisations have signed up to be on the database and be available for commissioners. The short film below will introduce SWOV and give details of how to join us, if you are a VCSE group based in MK.
