Social Value measurement is novel for our organisation and we are happy to announce, that we are at the start of an inspirational journey, to embed social value in our delivery, to achieve high value impacts, that will hopefully enrich the lives of others and create a fairer society. We are hoping for improved evaluation of our social outcomes, ability to measure our social return on investment and an opportunity for effective partnership working through our membership. We are currently developing a Social Supplier List, which will allow us to work more collaboratively with grass root organisations, to help us respond better to societal needs and address the social determinants of travel.
