Social Value UK’s newest organisational member is VINCI Facilities, who provide facilities management and building maintenance to both public and private sector clients. As part of their work, VINCI Facilities deliver a range of projects which are targeted at delivering social value.
One example of VINCI’s social value projects is Reading from the Start, a joint programme delivering social value through tackling the issue of illiteracy and poor educational support in three London boroughs. VINCI have also led on a project to renovate a residential activity centre for children as part of an ongoing collaboration with Barking and Dagenham College (BDC) construction students. More information can be found in their video.
VINCI have joined Social Value UK in order to facilitate a robust and industry-leading approach to managing and improving the social value they create for society, staff and customers.
Rory Murphy, Commercial Director for VINCI Facilities, says “social value return has been at the heart of our operations for many years. Membership of Social Value UK allows us to shape its future and raise the benchmark across industry creating more lasting legacies within the communities we work.”
Social Value UK are pleased to welcome a new member from the facilities management and construction industries. The arrival of the Public Services (Social Value) Act in 2012 created a big opportunity for social value to be generated from companies providing large public sector contracts. It is encouraging to see some of the main players in these industries engaging with this crucial agenda.
