Social Value Policy and Framework

The revised Social Value Policy and Framework sets out the legal context for social value and the proposed approach for the county council to deliver social value through its commissioning, procurement and contract management activities. At the centre of the social value strategy are the priorities for the county council and Lancashire 2050.


The aim of the revised policy is to focus the council's procurement activity across all service areas with a shared aim, shared ambition, shared goals and shared priorities. The revised policy will provide a structured approach to monitoring, measuring and reporting our social value achievements.
