Social Value

Wythenshawe Community Housing Group (WCHG) recognises that our suppliers can have a significant social, economic and environmental impact. We want all organisations bidding for work with us to consider how they can reduce any negative impacts and maximise positive impacts.

All WCHG tenders with a contract value of £50,000 or more will ask about social value.

Along with others in the Greater Manchester Housing Providers, we have produced a toolkit to help people understand how they deliver social value.
