The findings from the Wrestling with Social Value project have been translated into a ‘Social Value Toolkit’. The Toolkit has been developed principally to help guide heritage practitioners working within institutional contexts who need to understand the social values associated with the historic environment as part of their work conserving and managing heritage.

The Toolkit will be officially launched at an online event on Wednesday 9 June 2021. It is available to view online here (link opens a new window): https://socialvalue.stir.ac.uk.

The Toolkit is being published and made publicly available online. It is intended for use by sector professionals, however, as the guidance is modular and scaleable, it may also have wider applications. If there is interest in so doing, we may explore adapting or developing additional materials for other purposes in due course.
