Charter for Social Responsibility
We are one of the very first organisations to be an accredited Charter signatory of The Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility.
The award reflects our forward thinking and ethos, and is a prerequisite when bidding for new work and providing new services to local authorities and government.
Skips Educational Social Responsibility supports and specialises in working closely with partners in communities, including schools and hospitals.
If you are not yet a recipient and would like to know how best to be successful with your action plan we are happy to help.
From the Birmingham City Council Press Release:
Firms from Birmingham and beyond have been recognised for their efforts to maximise social value from the contracts awarded to them by the city council.
The inaugural Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility awards presentation ceremony was staged at the Council House today (February 11).
A total of 17 organisations were presented with certificates in recognition of having had accepted action plans detailing how they will deliver benefits to Birmingham through the charter’s six principles. The creation of the charter was a key pledge made by the council’s incoming administration in the summer of 2012.
Cllr Stewart Stacey, Cabinet Member for Commissioning, Contracting and Improvement at Birmingham City Council, said: “The Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility is one way of ensuring that as much of the council’s £1billion spent on contracts as possible is used to get extra value for Brummies but it is also about setting out a new ‘way of doing business’ in our city as a whole.
“So, I am delighted that we are now at the stage where we can recognise the organisations that are setting a standard for ethical business practices for all other companies to aspire to, whether contractors or not.”
