Social Value

Your Option is home to team members with the biggest hearts.  Through our Your Option Giving Back Program, we have volunteered countless hours of our time to support causes and the communities we serve.

Social Value Committee:

Volunteering

Your Option’s Social Value Committee was launched in December 2022. We wanted to ensure social value is represented across all our service lines, and incorporate members from an array of backgrounds, to achieve the most powerful impact. Your Option Social Value Committee meets fortnightly to measure, collaborate and create a positive difference we can make in our communities.

Our Skills Training:

Development

Investing in our team’s education and training is paramount, and ensures they have the confidence and knowledge to perform their job to the best of their ability. At Your Option we work with a diverse range of tenants and customers. Ensuring our team is equipped, we made it mandatory that all team members complete Level 1 and 2 of Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults. Additionally, all of our Supervisors are Mental Health First Aiders.  

Championing Locals:

Donating

Your Option recently came to the aid of London Foodbank and donated a much-needed van to help deliver food to the people who desperately need it the most. The Foodbank is a part of a nationwide network of Foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

Supporting Our Communities:

Donating

In 2021 we all went through a national pandemic, and the work did not stop for Your Option. Following all the Government guidelines and protocols our goal was to ensure that everyone was still able to live safely. Our team continued to work, and adapted to the ever changes that the pandemic brought. On a day-to-day basis Your Option wore all the PPE required and guided tenants through the new protocols. We donated masks to tenants and customers that were not able to source these. This ensured both team members and tenants were safe in their environments.

Care Home Befriending:

Volunteering

Social isolation is a recognised concern with the elderly, and for those in our extra care schemes it can feel lonely depending on your social ability or health. Your Option recognises this and consequently volunteered time to put together a suite of activities and events to help residents in 2021. This included an art and games afternoon, reading clubs, (and hearing some very interesting stories regarding their lives)!

Christmas Toy Appeal:

Donating

At Christmas, Your Option held a Christmas present appeal for asylum service users’ children. This was one of the main centres of activity by our Social Value Committee in December. The approach to this piece of work was undertaken through developing the relationship with the Baby Bank to ensure that a steady stream of toys, donations, funds, and other in-kind resources were supplied.
