Baltic Triangle-based CIF (Construction Impact Framework) provides public sector organisations with a fully-compliant route to construction skills with partner companies in the building industry
More than 60 businesses from across the North West gathered in Liverpool to hear how a Merseyside company is tackling deprivation and homelessness in Liverpool and Manchester.
Baltic Triangle-based CIF (Construction Impact Framework) provides public sector organisations with a fully-compliant route to construction skills with partner companies in the building industry.
As part of their contracts with CIF. they are given the opportunity to fight deprivation in hard-hit inner-city communities. With every contract CIF ploughs back 33% of its profits into community or charitable services.
The £200m EU compliant construction framework, led by former Merseyside Woman of the Year Sara Lawton, has supported more than 3,000 vulnerable people across the North West and generated over £500,000 in social value.
At the same time, it’s also grown its supply partner businesses by 3.5% and invested £100,000 into projects/initiatives that help to reduce pressures on frontline public-sector services.
During her welcome speech to supply partners at Blackburne House, Ms Lawton laid out her plans for the next two years, saying: “Working with communities is at the heart of the CIF ethos.
“And even though like every business we need to make a profit to survive, my message to other businesses in the North West is you can make a profit and contribute a bit more to your community.”
