Spotlight on Sustainability: Support in Delivering Social Value in Tenders

Social Value is now a minimum of 10% of any NHS tender.

There are 5 themes and as well as the mandatory inclusion of ‘Fighting Climate Change’ the contracting authority also can add any of the other 4 themes.

Recruitment, Retention and Development of people of colour in UK life Sciences is a free 90-minute live panel discussion that aims to address the systemic issues surrounding diversity and inclusion in the UK life sciences industry. There will be many expert panellists in attendance, including football legend, John Barnes! You can view the full line-up here.

Social Value requires the embedding of policies, procedures, attitudes, and behaviours within an organisation to be able to start a narrative to offer any additionality in a tender.

The relevant Social Value Themes are:

  • Equal opportunity
  • Tackling Economic Inequality
  • COVID-19 Recovery
  • Well-being

All 4 of these themes have been included in recent NHS tenders.

This webinar is an essential information opportunity to improve understanding on this topic.

It also provides a fantastic free training opportunity for all employees to get engaged and become better informed on this crucial topic.
