Social Value

At Farrans we never lose sight of the big picture.
We recognise our ability to have a positive and long-lasting societal impact through the delivery of Social Value by bringing economic, social and environmental benefits to the communities in which we operate.


Our in-house Community Business Partner team works collaboratively with our clients, social enterprises, and communities to ensure we place the needs of local people at the heart of our operations.

Our core business operations enhance prosperity through our commitment to procuring goods and services locally, supporting SMEs and working closely with our supply chain to drive innovation.

We are proud of our community programmes and the impact they have generated.

Our approach is data driven, smart and measurable. We have built a bespoke Social Value Calculator which is aligned to the national TOMs.

Our programmes include stakeholder management, employment and skills development, community engagement and education outreach.

We are winners of UK National GO Excellence in Public Procurement Awards 2020 in the categories of Social Value and Infrastructure or Capital Project of the Year.
