Mazars announced as investor in HACT’s Social Value Roadmap

HACT are proud to announce the latest investor of the social value roadmap is financial advisory firm, Mazars.

The social value roadmap was launched in September and was developed by the UK Social Value in Housing Taskforce, which comprises 17 organisations including leading social housing organisations, the Regulator for Social Housing and international experts in social value. The roadmap so far includes the development of the online tool Social Value Insight, an expansion of the UK Social Value Bank and integration of frameworks including procurement and SRS reporting. These developments would not have been possible without the investment and expertise of this group of organisations.

Mazars is a leading international audit, tax, and advisory firm with a commitment to the positive impact that the firm has on sustainability, people and society. They join the social value roadmap to bring their public and social sector expertise and knowledge to the task force to further enhance auditing and governance in the social housing sector. They will be contributing to the ongoing work around audit and assurance, which will support the development of more robust good practices across the sector.

“We’re delighted to welcome Mazars to the social value roadmap. They bring with them significant auditing expertise that will be invaluable as we develop best practice, tools and use cases for social value across and beyond the housing sector.”

Matthew Grenier

HACT, Business Development Director

“Mazars has always been guided by its founding principles: to act responsibly, in the public interest and for future generations. The social value roadmap is an important step on a journey toward transforming housing and measuring its impact. We are delighted to be involved with the development of the roadmap and collaborating with HACT to provide the sector with a tangible method of modelling, measuring and assuring their social impact, and we are very excited about the project.”
