Inclusion and Social Value Strategy

MHCC is committed to understanding and responding to the changing needs of the residents of Manchester and aims to:

  • Reduce unlawful discrimination in all our functions as a commissioner and employer
  • Reduce inequalities in health among the different groups of people living in the city
  • Develop a holistic awareness and understanding of communities and their health needs
  • Commission services from providers who are able to be responsive to the diverse needs of individuals and their families
  • Promote equality of opportunity and inclusion so that all staff and patients can achieve their potential and have the best life chances possible
  • Become a strong community leader, championing equality in all aspects of work and with other local partner agencies


The 5 strategic objectives are:

  • Objective 1: Increase awareness of the inclusion and social value agenda
  • Objective 2: Ensure effective communication, engagement and involvement tools are
    available and accessible for all communities
  • Objective 3: Ensure that all commissioned providers have robust standards in place in respect of equality, human rights and diversity, have plans in place to make improvements and are using social value to improve outcomes outside of statutory obligations
  • Objective 4: Ensure inclusive leadership and an engaged and representative workforce
  • Objective 5: Improve data collection and usage across all equality groups to establish a better picture of inequalities
