Bringing social value to our communities

The 2013 Social Value Act has had a major impact on how the public sector buys goods and services.

The act requires that public authorities consider wider social and environmental benefits when they choose suppliers, rather than basing commissioning decisions solely on price and quality.

For example, to secure an first aid contract a public authority could ask its suppliers to think about what they could do for the wider community, such as training in schools, donating old equipment or providing free training to the local community.

In 2020 new measurers were brought in to the 2013 Act, that will apply tests that all bidders, irrespective of their size and type, will be capable of meeting and therefore further levels the playing field for the UK’s small businesses, start-ups and voluntary and community sector organisations and social enterprises. These new measurers also placed a duty on procurement buyers in that they now have to include a Social Value weighting instead of just considering it.

Remote First Aid and its subsidiaries trade as a SME with <5 employees and in the past has found it hard to match the Social Value requirements being awarded to bigger organisations with bigger turnover, offering bigger Social Value projects. However from September 2021, Local Government Departments & Other Public Procurement buyers can set a percentage limit that is usually weighted around 10% of the tender bid. This has allowed Remote First Aid to bid for and win a number of smaller contracts that we have provided Social Value to the local communities.

Working with the Minister for Civil Society and the Social Value Policy Unit & the Business Services Association Policy Unit welcomes this move.

However we view Social Value as something that we do in our everyday business functions ourselves, alongside of providing any specific social values that are set by Public Bodies within their tenders. This allows us to provide bespoke projects or integration in to each unique buys Social Value requests. Below we list some of our Social Values we follow.

Adding Social Value to any contract is key to our success in building relationships with the communities we work in. We welcome applications from all aspects of our communities across Great Britain.

One project that we have supported is the Bristol Steppin Sistas, a brand new grassroots walking group of women of colour established in Bristol in April 2021 with just one member and now sitting at 700 plus active members, that aims to reach out to local women in the area who identify with their lived experience to encourage an interest in walking and thriving in open spaces.

A team of three instructors Phil, Steff & Pete provided an initial outdoor first aid course to 36 members from the club in November 2021 in the Wye Valley Gloucestershire, with an additional 18 members that will be joining Kelly, Pete, Chris & Martin for an advanced first aid course in the Brecon Beacons in August 2022 as part of our ongoing development support for the clubs membership.

A spin off from this Social Value project is a team of our trainers are heading in to Bristol later in 2022 to run a series of community based Emergency first aid responder courses for young people in the City.
