One of the biggest benefits of Social Value comes from the wider financial and nonfinancial value that your organisation can create in terms of the wellbeing of individuals and communities.

During the pandemic we have seen a rise in community volunteering – people wanting to help out and help people. This proactive support could be harnessed by business to achieve a huge and positive benefit for local people and local communities, your employees, their families and friends.

Getting involved in local projects is a great way to be part of a community, building its strength and resilience; and ensure that no one from any background gets left behind.

There are numerous projects in Greater Manchester – in fact there are around 16,000 community groups, voluntary organisations and social enterprises with which you could work.
