SOCIAL VALUE COMMITMENTS
We’ve thought carefully about what's important to us and our social value. We are passionate about supporting health and social care partners and addressing the needs of underserved communities. We offer support to collaborative projects which align to our values:
• Develop people and skills to improve 'life chances' for themselves and their families
• Increase supply chain resilience, capacity and sustainability
• Ensure effective stewardship over the programmes and resources we support
• Reduce the disability employment gap by recruiting for diversity
• Tackle workforce inequality
• Improve health and wellbeing
• Improve community integration
Our focus areas include reducing inequalities, improving access to employment opportunities, and supporting community partnerships. We are an independent small, medium enterprise (SME) and strive to deliver a high quality, responsive service, supporting workforce development and integration.
Working with us creates opportunities for students & young people to obtain paid work experience, boosting in demand employment skills for projects, events, training, communications, report writing & evaluation.
We’re committed to recruiting for diversity and recruiting from local communities. We work closely with Wandsworth WorkMatch, promote & advocate WorkMatch to other Wandsworth businesses, including Care Homes.
Through our Capacity Building programme, we make an annual allowance for pro bono activity offering professional skills & support to local VCSE’s. Ensuring funding flows through to VCSE’s & stakeholders, “doing with, not unto”.
