Organisation Change

Public Sector Mutuals and Spin Outs

As one of the first round of public sector spin outs we have gone through the complete journey from single contract reliance through to 30% year on year growth and an aggressive social business acquisition plan.

We are available to speak or consult on this subject.

Culture and Staff Engagement

Find out how we’ve turned around both NHS and private sector cultures into workplaces where staff thrive, enthuse and actively seek new ways to delight customers.

We can speak on this subject or provide staff workshops.

Social Enterprise Partnerships and LLP’s

We led on the creation of the UK’s first social enterprise health and Social care LLP, a vehicle that is now having an impact by delivering healthcare services differently.

This extremely flexible partnership structure allows for growth and sustainability, is attractive to commissioners in an increasingly macro commissioning structure and, offers an attractive investment opportunity to investors.

We offer consultancy services and presentation opportunities on this subject.

Social Change

Behaviour Change

The team at Social adVentures have over a decade of experience in developing impactful public health programmes.  We will work with you in the innovation stage of a tender or work with service users and front line staff to help you co-produce interventions combining ground breaking research with local community assets. This means ‘more bang for your buck!’

Here’s some examples:

  • We worked  Salford Primary Care Trust’s front line clinicians to create one of the countries first Social Prescribing Services producing a ‘whopping’ 10:1 social return on investment.
  • We have worked in partnership with three other social businesses to take learning from Scandinavia to create a ground breaking Green Care programme for people living with dementia.

Social Innovation

We have huge experience of creating public services using design processes found in other sectors. We use different methods to ensure all stakeholders and service users are involved in building new ways of delivery.  Our social innovators can help you rethink the way things are delivered and support teams to prototype new interventions through a well tested social innovation methodology.

We provide a variety of consultancy services, events and presentations on this subject.


Community and Employee Engagement 

Change can be difficult and daunting. Whether you are considering the process of “spinning out” of the public sector or improving your services to help service users make positive behaviour changes, it helps to talk to someone who has been there and done that. We even have t-shirts.  We have worked with front line staff considering changing the way things are delivered helping them understand the benefits of having engaged employees within in social purpose driven organisation.

Scott our Chief Executive is a Cabinet Office Mutual’s Ambassador he’s available to help you think through your redesign.


We work with local authorities, NHS organisations and other public service bodies on both strategy and implementation, including the feasibility and development of staff-led mutuals and community social enterprises.

Our team provides hands-on support to commissioners and front line teams through the entire journey from options appraisal and business planning through to transition and launch. We also provide advice on effective commissioning for economic and social value and on ongoing performance improvement services.
