Corporate & Social Responsibility

The Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 requires all public bodies to consider how the services they procure or commission may contribute to the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of their local communities. The Directors and Senior Management of Michael Dyson Associates Ltd recognise the importance of their commitment to this on behalf of our clients and have agreed a corporate social responsibility statement as follows:

“Michael Dyson Associates Ltd understands its responsibility to society and endeavours to meet all reasonable expectation of it”

In support of this statement we have a defined Social Responsibility commitment based on 6% of our turnover; this commitment is delivered through our social responsibility programme, specifically developed to measure social value outputs relating to supporting work experience, mentoring, training opportunities and assisting with local community projects within the areas we work. Through our commercial membership of TPAS, we are also constantly developing our resident engagement processes and social value outputs in line with best practice.

Our social responsibility programme endeavours to improve the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the communities in which we work and includes:

  • Appointment of apprenticeships at our head office location
  • Appointment of local Senior Project Manager to support our work in London and the South East
  • Annual intake of 6 undergraduate positions from universities throughout the UK, providing training and sponsorship opportunities.
  • Attendance at local careers fairs, university open days etc
  • Commitment to providing mentoring and financial support to the our designated charity, the Huddersfield branch of Worth Unlimited, a charity and social enterprise providing youth clubs and other food and learning related programmes to children and adults
  • Commitment to supporting educational and charitable initiatives within the communities in which we work e.g. presentation to teenage girls regarding women in construction in Lewisham
  • Operation of a charitable fund to support and sponsor our staff and clients in their own charity fundraisers; these have included 3 Peaks Challenge, Race for Life, Great North Run
  • Assisting with local community projects including painting of local scout hut, installation of incredible edible initiatives, painting of community centres.
  • Training for our client teams to “upskill” in relation to our service provision e.g. HHSRS surveys, procurement activities etc.
  • Promoting sustainable procurement policies, engagement with local supply chains and social enterprises.
