Help for suppliers with social value tender responses

We work with Voluntary Action North Somerset (VANS), who can give guidance on and facilitate opportunities to support voluntary organisations.

We also work with Quartet Community Foundation, who provide advice and opportunities for suppliers wishing to support the local community.

Our Skills4Work team work directly with businesses to support the delivery of employment and skills based outcomes focussed on social value.

They do this by:

  • supporting the development of company recruitment and retention strategies
  • enhancing links between contactors and employment support services
  • developing tailored training programmes, in partnership with local providers
  • promotion of opportunities to ensure adverts are seen by the right people

Our economic development team can also provide free business support to anyone located or considering relocation to North Somerset.
