Social Value recognition awards nomination form

The awards will celebrate businesses across Surrey who are making positive contributions to communities in innovative and impactful ways. You can nominate your own business or another that you feel deserves recognition. Winners will be announced at We Are Surrey 2019.

What is Social Value?

An organisation’s Social Value is the positive impact they make because of how they conduct their business. It’s more than being socially focused - it is about making a conscious effort to ensure that the wider effects of how you conduct your business are positive, and contribute to the long-term wellbeing and resilience of individuals, communities and society in general. Social value is how your organisation takes into account the wider economic, social and environmental effects of its actions.

Businesses can make decisions both about what they do and how they do it in ways that add social value. It could include such things as corporate responsibility, sustainability policies, how you procure and who is in your supply chain, your recruitment approaches or how your staff give back to the community you operate in.
