This year's annual Social Value Matters conference - organised by Social Value International - will take place on 10 and 11 April in Istanbul.This year's conference is being held against a backdrop of increasing inequality and global uncertainty. This year's focus is on what needs to happen to amplifying stakeholder voices to inspire change and maximise social value to the point that equality does improve. Sinzer's Emma Verheijke will be present to host a session on how to measure and manage the risks of not involving stakeholders and your social impact is not happening.
Long-term residential foster care for children in care adds value. This is what the social Business Case of foster care homes proves. It helps children with complex and multiple problems in establishing a social network. It improves the chance to find a job and housing and also improves their social position. But long-term residential foster care placement is not just beneficial for the child itself. It also means the financer (often being the city council) benefits from this. Residential foster care prevents more expensive types of care (such as group placements). It also prevents criminality and saves money in benefit payments. When expressing the added value in money, every euro invested has a return of €1,30! In this way, the social business case reinforcesthe added value of residential foster care.
