The public sector spends £250 billion and Central Government £49 billion per year on goods and services. UK government has announced plans to ringfence 10% of its spend for the VCSE sector through what is known as social value commissioning, with Black and Asian organisations a key priority.

We want to ensure that Black-led VCSEs and business owners can access opportunities to become direct suppliers to the public sector, form consortiums or join supply chains to grow their resilience and sustainability and become less reliant on grant funding.

But to do that, they need to understand how public procurement works and how to equip the organisation for success. That’s what our bespoke Restore Strengthen and Scale Up contract readiness Programme is all about.

We’ve teamed up with mainstream procurement specialists Star Procurement to deliver joint programmes and provide access to a wealth of Resources

Delivery will be online, and tender opportunities will be posted on the Digital Marketplace
