This report has been written by Big Society Capital to share data and insights on the Social Outcomes Contracts (SOC) market in the UK over the last ten years.
It draws on data from three main sources: Big Society Capital’s own archives, information provided by key participants in the market and an independent analysis done by ATQ Consultants commissioned by Big Society Capital.
The data collected in this report attempts to show how, over the past decade, the SOC market has grown and added significant value to thousands of individuals facing complex social issues. While the authors caution that a SOC approach is not without its challenges, they still contend that there is strong potential for social outcomes contracting to grow and continue to add value to improving public service delivery in the UK.
