Driving Social Value

National Highways

National Highways has developed a multi-faceted strategy to driving enhanced social value outcomes from our projects. Having consulted with stakeholders to agree social value imperatives, we have engaged extensively with the supply chain to communicate these and provide clarity, consistency and focus that allows us to work together to realise step changes in what we achieve. Through this engagement, we have taken time to understand how we can further the efforts of the supply chain: this has resulted in us procuring the UK's first DPS Framework to enhance access for our supply chain to Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise organisations.
