Public Health news: The Pledge
The Pledge aims to encourage South Tyneside organisations to focus on local activities and practical steps such as local procurement and recruitment, that can help South Tyneside to thrive.
It does not involve targets or difficult reporting, or an obligation to carry out every step in the Pledge.
It is based on the sharing of best practice, and a form being returned by those signing up every six months.
The Pledge is for all organisations in South Tyneside, big or small, public or private.
The aim is for South Tyneside organisations to commit to taking small steps to:
- boost local economic activity
- reduce health inequalities
- reduce carbon emissions
- enhance civic pride
South Tyneside Council and its partners will champion and monitor the Pledge, share best practice and provide advice, guidance & support to those signing up.
By signing the Pledge businesses are stating that they will do everything they can to spend, recruit and support our local area, helping South Tyneside to thrive.
