Lintel Trust manages the Community Benefit Fund on behalf of SPA. Up to £150,000 per year is distributed across Scotland on behalf of Scottish Procurement Alliance.
The Community Benefit Fund was launched in April 2017 and is now in it's fifth year of delivery. Both Lintel Trust and SPA are delighted with the impact made by the fund.
The SPA Community Benefit Fund is accumulated from procurement efficiencies generated by SPA partners from the collaborative procurement of construction and refurbishment works to social housing stock. SPA invests profits into the Community Benefit Fund which is distributed across Scotland.
We carried out social impact reporting on some sample projects in the first four years of delivery using the HACT Social Value Calculator.
