Essex County Council

Increasing Social Value for Essex Residents.

Essex County Council and its suppliers are working together to achieve more for our residents with every pound we spend. To do this, ECC is harnessing its £1.2 billion p.a. of public spending to influence the *way* suppliers deliver our contracts. In less than 18 months, our innovative social value programme has achieved commitments from suppliers totalling £42m of social value, including: 18,000 hours of support for getting young people and unemployed people into work; 357 jobs for those not in education, training or employment; 276 jobs for the long term unemployed and 3742 weeks of apprenticeship training
