Social Capital Social capital is the glue that holds communities together and is a combination of: civic engagement neighbourliness (reciprocity and trust in neighbours) social networks (friends and relatives) social support perceptions of local area (Office for National Statistics 2008)
Benefits of Social Capital “….. higher levels of social capital are associated with better health, higher educational achievement, better employment outcomes, and lower crime rates. In other words, those with extensive networks are more likely to be ‘housed, healthy, hired and happy’.“ (Cabinet Office 2010)
Wellbeing ‘A positive physical, social and mental state; it is not just the absence of pain, discomfort and incapacity. It requires that basic needs are met, that individuals have a sense of purpose, that they feel able to achieve important personal goals and participate in society. It is enhanced by conditions that include supportive personal relationships, strong and inclusive communities, good health, financial and personal security, rewarding employment, and a healthy and attractive environment.’ (Defra 2007)
Social Value The Demos study offers a help definition for ‘social value’ proposing that it ‘refers to wider non-financial impacts of programmes, organisations and interventions, including the wellbeing of individuals and communities, social capital and the environment’. (Wood and Leighton 2010)
Social Return on Investment For commissioners, social capital building often links into building social value measurements into procurement processes. There are several different methods for calculating social value, including the Social Return on Investment (SROI) model, which seeks to quantify social benefits achieved against the cost of the investment.
