Greater Manchester Housing Providers are committed to driving change in the role social value plays in supporting social outcomes across Greater Manchester. As a group with a strong social purpose and a combined annual turnover in excess of £1bn we are keen to maximise social value within our own organisations as well as influence those working with us to do the same.

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.
