What is social value?
In May 2020, H&F adopted a new social value strategy, which requires all suppliers to commit to delivering social value of at least 10% of their contract value.
This will include access to jobs and skills support for residents, greater opportunities for local businesses, support for community organisations and help the borough on its journey to carbon net zero.
Social value to support employment and skills
Through our social value activities, H&F is seeking to secure employment, apprenticeships, work placement and training opportunities for local people.

Driving Social Value in Hammersmith & Fulham
- Faithful+Gould support AgeUK Hammersmith & Fulham
AgeUK H&F provides a wide range of services and activities that promote wellbeing and independence. The charity needed support to prepare a venue for their annual stakeholders party.
As part of their social value commitments to Hammersmith & Fulham Council, Faithful+Gould deployed a wonderful team of volunteers who helped AgeUK H&F spruce up their venue in preparation for their annual event.
The day started with a quick but delicious lunch at Age UK H&F's own Community Cafe

Omar Hadjel – Social Value Manager at Faithful+Gould says:
“It is wonderful to see the impact that our social value commitments have on the communities of Hammersmith & Fulham. Our volunteers unanimously commented on how rewarding it is to take part in community projects. We are very lucky at Faithful+Gould to have a team of wonderful colleagues, impassioned and good willed who never fail to step up to community engagement activities wherever we carry out our projects work. It is with this charitable and collaborative spirit that we invite other suppliers in Hammersmith & Fulham to join us in supporting community projects across the borough."
Ilaria Agueci - Social Value Manager at Hammersmith & Fulham says:
“It’s really encouraging for us to see Faithful+Gould’s steadfast commitment to delivering on their social value pledges. The impact of social value commitments from our entire supply chain has on our local communities is tangible. We are gradually seeing the value that the Council’s Social Value in Procurement Policy is yielding since we introduced it in January this year. “
