The Pledge

We pledge to:

Challenge ourselves to increase the positive impact we make on our local community and make better use of all of our assets – our buildings/grounds and our people.

In the next 6 months we will do at least three things that we don’t do at the moment.

Public sector organisations are being asked to commit to doing things differently. It’s critical that the impacts are felt in communities in the short term, but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be ambitious, or should be limited to the short term. To have maximum impact, changes should be sustained over time.

Each year we will let organisations know when their Social Impact Pledge is due to lapse and we will encourage them to resubmit for the next year. In doing so, we will ask that at least one of their commitments is different from the previous year to ensure that they are continuously reviewing their operations and challenging themselves to deliver ever more social value for the public.

We will be asking for feedback and lessons learned which will be added to our inspiration section to allow other organisations or communities to benefit from their experiences.
