Social Value UK are proud to announce Pagabo as Social Value Pioneers
Pagabo are a different kind of framework provider. They have a combined 50+ years’ experience within procurement, understand client’s challenges and work together to deliver the most value possible from all projects.
Pagabo take the complication out of procurement so all our frameworks are free to access, they don’t charge any engagement fees, and they offer support and advice throughout the life of a project.
Ahead of joining Social Value UK, we asked Pagabo a few questions about their social value journey.
Why do you think social value is important? In your organisation, your industry or in wider society?
Driving social value is at the heart of what we do. Since 2017 our frameworks have delivered over £1bn in social value.
We help clients to calculate the social, economic and environmental impact and the financial value of their project in real monetary terms. Through our partnership with Social Profit Calculator, we’re able to provide regular reports on these figures as projects progress through to completion.
We do this as we understand the importance of demonstrating the full social value on a project for the community which is impacted.
Does your organisation have a background in social value/social accounting/SROI?
We run social value reports on all projects we are part of and calculate the total social value that our frameworks have enabled. At the last count this was over £1.34bn.
What are your plans for your SVUK membership?
We’re excited to become a Pioneer member of SVUK and take advantage of all the membership benefits by raising our profile and meeting like-minded businesses who are committed to social value in the same way as we are. We are also keen to make the most of the knowledge that’s held in SVUK so we can grow our team and their understanding of social value.
Gerard Toplass, Chairman of Pagabo stated:
“SVUK has been setting the standards for Social Value for many years now, and Pagabo is proud to have joined the movement and are looking forward to working with them and their partners to continue to foster improved outcomes from the investments our frameworks create”
