Value Croydon - creating social value in Croydon through a joined up approach Croydon Council will co-create opportunities to boost local economic growth for businesses and people. For Croydon this will mean a focus on:
- Creation of jobs for local people,
- Opening up more commissioning & procurement opportunities to local businesses, the voluntary community and social enterprise sector
- Providing training and developing skills,
- Investing in local business growth
Following a period of user testing the Value Croydon website is now ready to be launched to the public - go to www.valuecroydon.com and have a look. This is a dedicated, Croydon focused, website which will provide a single place, where local businesses and local people will look for supply chain opportunities, upcoming tenders, job opportunities or training and find out about events such as meet-the-buyer, pre-engagement events or capacity building workshops that Croydon might be holding.
Please note this is a work in progress and the site will continue to be developed on an on-going basis. Feedback is welcome - please send to Commissioning@croydon.gov.uk
