About our Memberships
Join Social Value UK and become a part of our community today
Our membership is made up of people and organisations committed to meaningful measurement, management and creation of social value, and who believe this has the power to create sustainable change by influencing decision-making.
As the professional body for social value and impact management in the UK, our members play a leading role in driving forward principled practice, guiding legislation and being thought leaders in social value.
Our membership is more than a selection of products and services, it is a movement aimed at changing the way the world account for value.
Individual Members are an integral part of our community — working as experts, practitioners and advocates.
As an SVUK member you can expect tailored support and guidance through social value training and accreditation, either to enhance your knowledge or begin your journey as a professional in the field.
You will also become a member of Social Value International, the global standard setter for social value practice.
The joint-membership will give you access to a range of free and discounted training and events throughout the year.
There is also the opportunity to contribute to lobbying work, through surveys, consultations or joining our advisory board.
Social Value Consultants can further apply to be listed on our directory.

We know organisations want to better understand and manage the impact they have on society and the planet.
Becoming an Organisation Member is the first step on your social value journey, beginning to account for the non-monetary outcomes of your decisions.
By understanding the impact your organisation has on stakeholders – be it customers, service users, employees or the wider community – you can be responsive in your actions and take decisions to become sustainable.
Alongside our partners and consultants, we will guide you on how to embed our eight principles into your company practices and culture.
We will also provide discounts for social value report reviews and assurance, offer access to partly-subsidised training and share our expertise through our sector leads.
Further, you will join our membership movement and have your voice represented by our Advocacy Department, pushing for changes to legislation and policy at local and national level.
All membership costs are tax deductible.

Civil Society Membership Scheme

We are looking for organisations to lead the way forward, working with us to co-design training, deliver workshops and host events.
Alternatively you might work with us on drafting future legislation or lobbying the government to implement policies designed to promote social value.
A Social Value Partner Membership is defined by the work we do together and prices are determined as per Organisational Membership or the level of collaboration.

What our members are saying
“Being a member of Social Value UK has been a valuable source of support and guidance on our social value journey, and through the networks, newsletters and events helps me to keep on top of the latest developments in this exciting and rapidly developing space.”
“Being a member of SVUK connects me to a network of like-minded professionals all working toward the same agenda – doing more good and changing the world for the better – and this is very empowering! There are no two ways about it, this is the place to be during these times of change.”
If you are, or aspire to be, a social value professional purchasing membership for yourself (or small business), independent of the needs of your employer, then Individual Membership is ideal for you.
If you are leading or working on the social value measurement, management and reporting of social value for a whole Organisation, or department within in an organisation, then we recommend the Organisation Membership.
For local authorities we price by population served, for example a town council working with a population under 300,000 would sit as a Medium Organisation, and a City Council or Combined Authority working with populations of over 1 million would be a Very Large Organisation (see tiers by selecting Organisational Membership above).
