Every pound you invest with us helps to make a positive social value contribution in local communities.
We’re passionate about making a real impact, and that’s why we ensure every pound you invest with us helps to make a positive social value contribution in local communities - ensuring you gain more than just efficiency savings on your procurement spend.
Using our procurement frameworks ensures your organisation is complying with the Public Services (Social Value Act) 2012. The Act requires local authorities and other commissioners of public services to consider how their services can benefit people living in local communities.
As a social enterprise we're all about working to achieve great outcomes in challenging circumstances – and we’re committed to helping communities thrive.
The majority of our social value outcomes focus on delivering training and employment opportunities, and as an organisation we’ve created more than 5,200 jobs to date. We'll also support you by monitoring the delivery of outcomes.
We’re proud to consistently win awards for our achievements in procurement and social value – from winning a CIPS Supply Management accolade for the 'Best Contribution to the Reputation of Procurement' to being awarded the Cabinet Office Social Value Awards 'Driving Value for Money' category.
