The positive economic, social, and environmental impact that we have on society.
This is the first report of its kind produced by us, as a way of identifying how communities across North Wales have benefitted from all the development and maintenance work carried out, as well as services to support tenants.
The social value element reflects the positive value the business created for the local economy, communities and wider society.

As a business, we are now two years into our social value journey. Since we started looking at how we could capture our social and added value in 2021, we have appointed a Social Value Co-ordinator and have attempted to mainstream social value across the business and embed it into everything that we do.
Our aim is to continue this journey and improve the way we capture the added benefit that our activities create for our tenants and partners, year on year.
