Morgan Sindall Property services (MSPS) have once again achieved the wellbeing valuation certification from HACT for their social value activities. Measured through the UK Social Housing Bank and certified by HACT, during 2022-23 MSPS delivered over £7.4 million of wellbeing across 16 contracts. This means that for every £1 spent, they delivered £30 of value to residents and communities across the areas they work in.
Building on their strong performance across previous years, these figures show they have supported more residents and communities than ever before and made ongoing improvements to their social value programmes. Already wide-ranging, during 2022-23 MSPS delivered an even more diverse programme of initiatives, including innovative approaches to improving resident wellbeing through retrofit works and supporting residents to take action to tackle climate change.

Head of Social Value, Helen Sheen, said: “Our work to deliver positive impacts for residents and communities is more important than ever. This year, we have focused our efforts on supporting customers with the continued social and financial impacts of the pandemic, the cost-of-living crisis and rising energy costs. Moving forwards, we will continue to work collaboratively with our clients to develop programmes that leave sustainable legacies tailored to the specific needs and circumstances of all residents and local areas.”
