Supporting Public Sector projects to demonstrate Social Value
For public sector projects, demonstration of social value (as defined by the Social Value Act) is a key part of the tender process. Meeting the social value act requirements or aligning with your clients CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) values can help you to secure new business. Your Account Manager has direct access to our Public-Sector team who can support you to develop strategies that demonstrate the social value your company provides.
Here are some examples of how your business can be involved during 2019.
This 300km bike ride takes place over a May weekend and is the main fundraising event for the Dulux core charity - The Outward-Bound Trust. We welcome our customers and partners to enter either as a solo rider or as a team of up to 5 people. There is also the addition of a new Trails series for those who prefer to run /walk in half, full and ultra-marathon distances, ending at the London Revolution basecamp at Windsor Racecourse. The cycle route takes you around London and the Home Counties, and the runners along the beautiful Thames path where you'll join hundreds of other riders and striders in a colourful and enjoyable weekend.
Registrations close soon! Over the years, team Dulux has raised over £680,000 for The Outward-Bound Trust an educational charity that uses the power of the outdoors to change the lives of young people. The funds raised has enabled over 1,000 young people take a journey of self-discovery through powerful, challenging, outdoor experiences. These experiences help young people, often from deprived backgrounds, to realise that they can achieve much more than they may have previously believed. The proof over time has been that attending OBT courses can have a profound impact on the future success of those who take part.
Did you know than an estimated 50 million litres of the 320 million litres of paint sold in the UK each year go to waste? This paint is either thrown away or stored in homes or garages despite over 50% of it still being usable. Community RePaint is a UK wide paint reuse network, sponsored by Dulux, that collects leftover paint and redistributes it at a low cost to those in social need, communities and charities.
For 25 years Dulux has supported Community RePaint, transforming places and lives with leftover paint. You can also get involved by recycling your leftover paint. Head to the Community RePaint website to find out more.
