Our Partners' Commitment to Community Legacy in Scotland

Community Legacy Mission Statement

This Community Legacy Charter defines our joint commitment to SCAPE Scotland to deliver community benefits and to support the SCAPE Community Legacy Programme throughout the duration of the framework.

As a collaborative approach, we (the framework partners) will align our community benefits to maximise the long-lasting impact of our outcomes for clients, their communities and future generations. As a genuine opportunity to improve the health, wealth and wellbeing of local communities, this charter is based on our shared approach of mutual trust, respect and collaboration.

As required by SCAPE Scotland’s frameworks, we will lead community activities, provide pro-bono services and make communities stronger by using local labour and suppliers, whilst training local people.

In addition, we will work in partnership with SCAPE Scotland and its clients to create and deliver positive outcomes through the SCAPE Scotland Community Legacy Programme. All activities will be flexible, accessible and inclusive. They will engage the local community and involve working with those identified as benefiting the most.

Employment, skills and training

We commit to working with local suppliers particularly from the SME, Microbusiness and VCSE categories.

Through the SCAPE Scotland Community Legacy Programme, we will create joint initiatives to increase employment and training opportunities for local people, especially in areas of high unemployment, supporting people into work and helping young people to realise their potential.

We will play an active role in promoting STEM and the benefits of working in the construction industry to students, and commit to actively support and encourage the next generation of industry experts.

How we will do it

Working collaboratively, we will listen to the needs of our clients and their local communities. Setting aside organisational and geographical constraints, we will work with other framework partners, SCAPE Scotland and invited third parties, to co-design and deliver a programme of community benefit activities to provide optimal value.

Measuring impact and positive outcomes

The collective output of the SCAPE Scotland Community Legacy Programme will be measured using the National TOMs (Themes, Outcomes and Measures) and will be recognised as a contribution towards our total social value delivery as a framework partner.

All successfully delivered community benefit initiatives will be shared with SCAPE Scotland to enable promotion of the benefits received through SCAPE Scotland frameworks.

This charter demonstrates our commitment to the future of communities in Scotland and represents a collection of dedicated partners determined to do things better.
