Benefits to the local community
Social – contributing to local education, volunteering, offering training and work experience
Economic – bringing employment to the area or consuming local goods and services
Environmental – operating sustainability and managing our waste responsibly
The Public Services Act partly drives this. The Act came into force on 31 January 2013. The Act requires people who commission public services to think about how they can also secure wider social, economic and environmental benefits. So we as a service provider need to think about how we can deliver that.
We are passionate about providing broader value because we know it makes good business sense. Here at Allied, we know that spending more of our money locally can help to build stronger communities. It can also improve health and better the environment. Local communities have our commitment to bringing additional support. We encourage all of our staff to play their part.
From food, clothes and toy banks to general recycling, our branches are working hard to give back to their local communities and enjoying it every step of the way.
