Social Value Surrey
Social Value Surrey is looking at how businesses, voluntary, community and faith sector (VCFS) organisations and the public sector can work together to support people in Surrey communities. As part of this project representatives from VCFS, local business and Surrey County Council have developed a short ‘how to’ guide to support VCFS organisations looking to engage with businesses. In the guide there is information to help VCFS organisations think through how they might benefit from support from businesses as well as sharing best practice on how to build relationships with local employers and tips for organising employee volunteering. At the end of the document there are some suggestions about where you can get more information and further support, including details of local organisations that may be able to help broker relationships with businesses. Please find the toolkit attached at the bottom of this page.
