Kent’s cultural commitment to social value

A social value approach, education partnership, commissioning toolkit and pilot evaluation 2014 - 2018

Project description

Our audit of cultural organisations’ contribution to social value is summarised here.

In 2017 we supported partners in east Kent on their local cultural education partnership with a partnership plan.

Arts at the heart is our evaluation report of a project for vulnerable young people in Kent. It was a pilot in which six arts organisations were contracted by public health to help the young people learn about the ‘Six Ways to Wellbeing’. The pilot helped us to learn about the tips and pitfalls for cultural organisations beginning to be commissioned. As a result we created this online toolkit and animation on behalf of Kent CC, Artswork and ROH Bridge with our design partners Morph.


In my contact with you both I have always been impressed with your knowledge, generosity, openness and personable approach - you made something that normally I would find a little daunting, interesting and accessible. Of course I can't forget to mention the humour and lightheartedness that you brought.
