Social Value Training Workshop: Understanding how to measure the costs, benefits and value created by arts and health interventions

In a climate of limited budgets and structural reform of local authorities, it is necessary to gain more understanding of what people value when deciding how to allocate resources.

Traditional cost-effectiveness evaluation methods may not capture the full value of activities such as art initiatives that aim to improve health and wellbeing, as the benefits can be hard to quantify and can affect not just the person taking part but also the people in their wider network.
