Social Value

We are focused on ensuring that every procurement is driven by Social Value.

Further competitions for our frameworks enable you to procure on your chosen Social Value criteria.

Your procurement can directly address your organisation’s range of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) objectives in compliance with The Public Services (Social Value) Act 2013.

As a Community Interest Company, two thirds of our profits are committed to a Social Investment fund.

Public sector organisations using our frameworks can take advantage of the fact that, as a CIC, a significant proportion of our profit is asset locked, and can be allocated to relevant Social Value projects..

We hope that this fund will add a unique Social Value dimension to each of our customer’s procurements, by awarding grants to projects that fight climate change and enhance young peoples’ life chances, and by targeting marginal public services and projects that are local to our customer’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) programmes.
