2019 / 2020 Delivering Value for Money (VFM) Report launched

Published 26 November 2020

We are proud to launch our Delivering Value for Money Report 2019 / 2020.
 
We aim to deliver VFM in everything we do and look to drive efficiency wherever possible.  We look to work with our suppliers to work jointly wherever possible, getting the best deals and delivering effective services for our customers.
 
Our VFM Assurance Statement shows how we have demonstrated VFM over the year and delivered what we said we would in a cost effective way.

Our key achievements include:

  • building over 400 new homes for the district;
  • saving the NHS an estimated £26.6 million through our Care Link and 24 hour responder service; and
  • claiming £392,000 in return for energy generated through our solar panels on homes across the region.

Our Delivering Value for Money Report shows the Social Return on Investment (SROI) of our activities and the impact these have on our customers and other stakeholders.  In 2019 / 2020 we generated a SROI of £6.17 for every £1 invested. The remaining social dividend is carried forward to fund future development initiatives.
