Real Ideas appreciates that strong partnership working is a key factor in achieving social, economic, and environmental outcomes. Together, through Sustainable and Inclusive partnering, we can help nurture and develop a network of opportunities and ways of working which have Social Value at their core.
A focus on Social Value provides opportunities to think about how resources are allocated to the benefit of wider society and in particular our local communities. Considering Social Value goes beyond thinking about the cost and quality of piece of work or awarding a contract and takes a broader look at the collective benefits. By putting Social Value at the heart of our purchasing systems we are able to create relationships and supply chains which have sustainable local impact.
