We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Jacob Hill to the Board of Social Value UK. As the founder of Offploy, a social enterprise focused on mentoring and supporting people with criminal convictions to find meaningful employment, Jacob brings a wealth of expertise and lived experience to our organisation.
At Social Value UK, our vision is a world where all organisations make decisions based on measuring their social impact. With his passion for social impact measurement, Jacob’s appointment to our board is a natural fit. We believe that his experience and insights will be invaluable to our organisation as we work towards this vision.
“As a social entrepreneur with lived experience of the criminal justice system, I’m thrilled to join the Board of Social Value UK and use my expertise to support other social organisations to increase their impact and deepen their social value. By measuring our impact, we can prove the effectiveness of our services and continuously improve them to support more people more effectively,”– Jacob Hill
Jacob’s appointment to our board is also significant because of the barriers he has faced in the past. As someone with lived experience of the criminal justice system, Jacob knows first-hand the challenges that people with criminal convictions face in finding employment and being accepted into decision-making roles. We are proud to be an organisation that values diversity and inclusion, and we believe that Jacob’s appointment sets an example for other organisations to follow.
In his role on our board, Jacob will use his expertise to support other social enterprises to increase their impact and deepen their social value. He is particularly interested in the use of technology to minimise the burden of administration on organisations, allowing them to focus more on delivering their services and supporting their beneficiaries.
We are excited to work with Jacob and learn from his experiences. We believe that his appointment to our board is a significant step forward for our organisation and for the wider social enterprise community. Please join us in congratulating Jacob on this well-deserved appointment!
