This year's theme is social value
|We want to see how our social value commitments are being put into effect on your site or in your community.
We invite you to submit images showing how any of our four social themes have been implemented on one of our frameworks: YORbuild, YORcivil, YORconsult or in a YORhub supported community project.
|Show us how your project is being delivered in a sustainable way. Are you installing or using renewable energy sources? Have you catered for local wildlife?
|Employment and skills|
|We want to see how anyone in your project has benefited from being involved with YORhub. How are you encouraging the next generation of contractors? Show us how you’re helping apprentices develop.
|Supporting community projects|
|YORhub contractors make a commitment to support community projects. How has your project helped local organisations to keep up their great work?
|Supply chain engagement|
|We at YORhub are committed to ensuring sub-contractors contributing to our projects are benefiting from their involvement, and we’d like to see this in action.|
