Successful devolution for our city-region economy rests upon capitalising on social value

The Liverpool Social Value Charter was launched in May 2015 with a significant potential to impact upon the local economy. It is highly relevant to consider social value for the city-region at a time of continued public sector retrenchment and a persistence in what seem to be intractable problems of poverty, ill-health and unemployment for many communities in the city-region.

As the devolution agenda in England moves slowly towards a city-region solution we ask if the businesses and institutions in the Liverpool city-region have the appetite and wherewithal to exploit the social value that exists within the local economy.

Panel members will offer their views on social value and discuss further with the audience the idea that only through realizing the social value of the city-regions institution, businesses and communities will successful devolution occur.
