Wales Wellbeing Bond – Term coined by WCVA to promote new ways of delivering public services that utilise the skills of the third sector. Wales Wellbeing Bond encompasses a range of delivery approaches that can unlock innovative third sector delivery of public services. Focus on joint working – Not about public sector commissioning third sector organisations to deliver prescriptive services.
Social Impact Bond (SIB) – SIB’s seek to meet several objectives of public and third sectors – - Expansion of third sector delivery of public services at its heart - Designed to improve services and reduce public sector expenditure to allow re-investment and create cost savings - Enhanced service delivery creates population wellbeing impact - Attract outside investors to fund initial activity
Communities Investment Fund Client Group Third Sector Organisations Co-ordinator Re-active Programme Public authorities pay for costly re-active services Preventative Programme Investors finance allows Third Sector Organisations to undertake preventative programmes with a target client group Investor gets repaid from savings made by Public Authority Public Authority
Potential SIB Activity – The SIB model is not limited to any particular service area and can be applied where upfront investment to enable third sector delivery can save a public authority money to repay the initial investment and then finance ongoing activity. Possible activity – - Improving mental health provision - Increasing in-county and in-Wales vulnerable adult/child accommodation - Hospital transport - Etc etc etc
Other Investments - Finance can also play a key role in enabling third sector organisations to – Take on payment by results contracts Undertake upfront investments prior to contract delivery Meet financial requirements of tender opportunities
