We believe that we can all make a huge difference. Our mission extends beyond our services and products and into the local communities we serve.
We want to look for the relevant social, environment and economic value in everything that we do. Encouraging social inclusion and advocating social value contributions across the organisation, we actively engage with and support local communities, from working with charitable organisations to providing educational and employment opportunities across the North East and beyond.
Social Value Quality Mark
We’ve been awarded the Social Value Quality Mark (SVQM). Awarded by an independent social enterprise, the SVQM is awarded to values-driven organisations and is the only social value accreditation that’s recognised across the UK and internationally. It enables us to demonstrate independent accreditation and recognises our commitment to social value.
