MAXIMISING SOCIAL IMPACT
We provide a range of proposition development and impact-readiness services to commissioners and delivery providers who are designing or delivering impact-first solutions, such as Social Impact Bonds (SIBs).
Future Public was established to support organisations that work for the public good to deliver better outcomes. Maximising social impact is the very reason we exist, and it the litmus test we set ourselves for every client we work with and every project we engage in. As the role for social investment in finding new ways to unlock solutions to some of society's most complex issues grows and develops, so too does the need to drive and measure tangible social impact.
Future Public has already supported several SIBs - both in design and delivery - and we welcome the opportunity to engage with potential new partners (whether commissioners or providers) to explore how we can co-develop new models to deliver high levels of social impact.
We work with organisations and commissioners that are trying to find solutions to complex social problems where social investment may unlock better social outcomes long-term. We use our experience managing major business development projects to help develop operationally and commercially robust propositions which will attract investment and grant support.
IMPACT AND INVESTMENT READINESS
Future Public can help nurture organisations seeking social investment to develop the key organisational capabilities they will need to deliver effectively. For example, building an impact framework, data analytics and detailed operational/financial reporting tools. We can also continue to work with organisations and partnerships that secure social investment throughout the delivery stage to ensure high levels of performance management and accountability.
Our service design team will work collaboratively with all key stakeholders to build a Service Blueprint which engages those involved in both the design and delivery stages. This is used to align expectations about delivery and impact, ensuring the venture delivers the expected level of performance in terms of outcomes and social impact. Where the venture is a Social Impact Bond, the Blueprint can also be used to build confidence about the expected level of investor return.
The Future Public team has experience of managing social impact projects to drive improved outcomes and performance. We can partner organisations that would benefit from reporting and analytics tools, performance management support or service design expertise to improve accountability and connectivity between inputs and outcomes.
