About ANTZ

ANTZ specialises in supporting all types of organisations in delivering social value in local communities. In particular, businesses who are required to deliver public sector contracts and/or are in a supply chain which is required to create social impact.

Social value now has a minimum weighting of 10% in all government and local authority procurement contracts since January 2021, making it essential for these businesses to understand how to give back locally in order to grow commercially.



The four-day programme is available fully-funded to organisations who meet the eligibility criteria. To be eligible for funding the organisation must be classed as an SME and located in Greater Manchester.
