人民力量的價值 (The Value of People Power) 

“… 該報告包括對人的力量價值的經濟分析,並探討了公共服務如何更好地評估公民的貢獻。

無論我們稱其為正式或非正式志願服務,捐贈,社會行動,互助,還是僅僅是人們在幫助人們,相互聯繫和互相幫助的力量都為英國社會做出了巨大貢獻。

儘管如此,人們的力量-一種使公民能夠互相幫助,建立社會聯繫並採取集體行動來塑造變革的活動-通常被公共服務所低估。

在本報告中,我們提出了12種方法,可以闡明人的力量所產生的收益。為此,我們通過繪製和估算人員力量的經濟價值,以及超越經濟學派生的方法來探索利益和價值的不同方面,例如改善健康狀況,增強信任度或改善民主體制。

該報告包括一個框架,公共服務官員和民間社會組織可以使用該框架來幫助更好地理解和闡明人的力量可以產生的全部價值,並促使人們以不同的方式證明這一價值。

主要發現:
公民的貢獻巨大-我們每年至少提供35億小時的時間互相幫助。
但是,“人的力量”卻被低估了。從我們支持100多個以人為本的創新的工作中,我們越來越發現,使用當前的評估和衡量手段,這些方法的許多價值可能會被忽略。

我們試圖估算人力資源的經濟價值,發現它每年為英國創造至少1030億英鎊至1220億英鎊的可衡量經濟收益。

人的力量還創造了許多無法用經濟手段衡量的價值:從改善健康和福祉到增進社會聯繫,從對公共服務的信任增加到建立運轉良好的民主制度。

政策建議
公共服務專員和出資者應擴大其衡量範圍,以充分利用人的力量,著重於福祉,聯繫和目標等成果。

數字,文化,媒體和體育部應建立一個新的人民力量證據中心,以開發新的方法來證明人民力量的價值。

英國政府應創造新的方式,通過諸如更新《社會價值法》(Social Value Act)和在正式的會計核算活動中將人的力量的價值納入有關公共支出的決策中,來充分發揮人的力量的價值。…”

“… This report includes an economic analysis of the value of people power and explores how public services can better value the contribution of citizens.

Whether we call it formal or informal volunteering, giving, social action, mutual aid, or simply people helping people, the power of connecting and helping each other makes a huge contribution to UK society.

Despite this, people power – activity that enables citizens to help one another, create social connections, and take collective action to shape change – is often undervalued by public services.

In this report, we make the case for 12 ways in which the benefits generated by people power can be articulated. We do this by mapping and estimating the economic value of people power, as well as looking beyond approaches derived from economics to explore different dimensions of benefit and value such as health improvements, increased trust, or a better functioning democracy.

The report includes a framework that can be used by public service officials and civil society organisations to help better understand and articulate the full range of value that people power can generate, and prompt different ways of evidencing this value.

Key findings
The contributions of citizens are huge – we give at least 3.5 billion hours of time each year helping each other.

But ‘people power’ is undervalued. From our work supporting over 100 people-powered innovations, we have increasingly seen that much of the value of these approaches can be missed when using current means of evaluation and measurement.

We attempted to estimate the economic value of people power and found it creates between at least £103 billion and £122 billion a year in measurable economic benefit to the UK.

People power also creates a lot of value that can’t be measured by economic means: from improving health and wellbeing to increasing social connection, and from increasing trust in public services to creating a better functioning democracy.

Policy recommendations
Public service commissioners and funders should expand what they measure to capture the full value of people power, focusing on outcomes such as wellbeing, connection, and purpose.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports should establish a new evidence centre for people power to develop new methods of evidencing the value of people power.

The UK Government should create new ways to include the full value of people power in decisions about public spending, through actions such as updating the Social Value Act and including the value of people power in official accounting measures of activity…”
