We care about our local community and having a positive impact on the places where we work is important to us.
We have put in place a Social Value Action Plan which sets out a strategy for ensuring that social value is at the forefront of everything we do. The purpose of this is:
• to reflect the requirements laid out in the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 and ensure that we are supporting local authorities in achieving their aims through the development and planning process
• to demonstrate our commitment to delivering social benefits in terms of economic, environmental and social wellbeing to the communities in which we work
• to create a design philosophy that can deliver innovative and sustainable solutions through our projects, which can offer real opportunities to local communities and users alike
As an organisation, Michael Sparks Associates has always supported charity. We are a proud founding partner of LandAid, the property industry charity. Through regular donations and giving expert advice to partnered charitable organisations we are helping to end youth homelessness in the UK.
In addition to youth homelessness, every winter we raise and donate money to Crisis at Christmas, and in 2018 we were also pleased to support : Dementia Support, Children with Cancer UK, Walking with the Wounded, and Women for Refugee Women.
