An Introduction to Social Value, Wellbeing and Social Return on Investment

Recent legislation has extended Local Authority responsibility for health and wellbeing, required the integration of health and care services and the evaluation of the impact of services on the wellbeing of the community. This has  required LAs, the NHS and Community organizations to work together to plan and evaluate the services they support in new ways. This session introduced some of the challenges this poses, while the ideas on co production and the tools for evaluating behaviour change show some of the methods that can be used to help plan and evaluate initiatives in this sphere.
