SPC’s Lindsay Barton, joined Shropshire Council and its partners on the Shropshire Social Value Group at the launch of the Social Value Charter for Shropshire. The Charter is a set of guiding principles and simple commitments that organisations operating in Shropshire are invited to adopt, whether they are public sector commissioners, service providers, voluntary, community and  social enterprise organisations or businesses.

Organisations signing up to the Charter are making a commitment to:

  • Support the Shropshire economy
  • Promote well-being in Shropshire
  • Make Shropshire a great place to live.

SPC is delighted to have signed up to the Charter and is encouraging our Members to sign up too.

To date, the Social Value Group is comprised of representatives from Shropshire Council, Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group, local housing associations, West Mercia Police & Crime Commissioner and the NHS Midlands & Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit, as well as SPC representing the voluntary and community sector.

Examples of how social value can be defined include:

  • New jobs created for Shropshire residents
  • Support for community based organisations and initiatives

Further details about the Social Value Charter in Shropshire can be found on the Shropshire Council  http://shropshire.gov.uk/news/2017/03/shropshire-council-launches-social-value-charter-with-partners/
