Greater Manchester Housing Providers are committed to driving change in the role social value plays in supporting social outcomes across Greater Manchester.

The group has achieved a wide range of benefits across Greater Manchester, showing that social housing providers go beyond simply providing homes where people can live.  The outcomes of the ‘social value’ work are not just felt by those living in social housing but also by the wider community, business’ in the region, and the economy more generally.

What is Social Value?

Social Value is “the benefit to the community from a commissioning/procurement process over and above the direct purchasing of goods, services and outcomes” –The Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012

We have committed to working collaboratively to embed and increase the social value that we create collectively through our supply chains.

 GM Housing providers are working together delivering social value across the region. The data below is based on the 2017/18 financial year and is a baseline position which will be developed and reported on annually.
