Social Value Act

In 2010 White authored the Public Services (Social Value) Act which passed through Parliament in 2012. Implemented in 2013, the Social Value Act imposes on all public bodies a duty to consider how the services they commission might improve the economic, social and environmental well-being of the area. [5] In January 2013 White was appointed by the Government to act as the UK's first ever social value ambassador, meaning that he was tasked with overseeing and encouraging improvements in the social, environmental and economic impact of public services contracts.
