Small Business and FSB Member Social Value Consultation Workshop

Bristol City Council, in association with a number of partners including the Federation for Small Businesses (FSB), are running a consultation about how they plan to deal with a piece of legislation which could help local SMEs win more contracts from the public sector, by highlighting the social value they bring.

The Social Value Act requires people who commission, or buy public services to consider securing added economic, social or environmental benefits for their local area when doing so, and it is seen as a way for local businesses to use the local good they do as a possible advantage in the procurement process.

The Council in partnership with FSB, is running a workshop specifically for small businesses and FSB members, to discuss the draft policy and toolkit and find out what small businesses will need to help them to quote and bid for work, where social value is included, and what the barriers, challenges and risks the proposals may mean for small businesses.
