The Leeds Social Value Charter was launched on 24th May 2016 and is being adopted by a wide range of partners from across the public, private and third sectors in Leeds. The Charter sets out shared ambitions to promote social responsibility, build social capital and deliver social value, in support of the vision is for Leeds to be a healthy, fair, compassionate and caring city where everyone benefits from the city’s economic growth.

The Charter itself sets out in one brief statement the city partners’ commitment to promote social responsibility and social value and to make the maximum impact in Leeds with the Leeds pound. It has also been produced in a four-page version which includes background material and links, together with some suggestions of ways that the Charter can be put into practice.

Both of these documents are available to download here, and in due course additional material about putting social value into practice will be available on this site. In addition a number of approaches to implementation are being developed by partners, both within their own organisations and collectively, and information about those will also be posted here as it becomes available.
