Social Procurement

Every purchase your organisation makes is an opportunity to create social value. By bringing social enterprises into your supply chain you can make a direct investment into supporting local communities and a more sustainable planet. Here at SEUK we are leaders in social procurement and we have a number of options to support any buying organisation to engage with leading social enterprises through your day-to-day purchasing.

Buy Social Corporate Challenge

The Buy Social Corporate Challenge is one of SEUK’s flagship programmes, working with leading businesses to bring social enterprises into their supply chain.

Social Procurement Connect

The team at SEUK has ten years experience of supporting buying organisations to source from social enterprises and in Autumn 2022 we are launching a new initiative to take this work even further: Social Procurement Connect.


This will build on the work we have done with high-profile corporations through our Buy Social Corporate Challenge and will provide a much wider range of organisations with the resources, tools and connections they need to successfully engage with social enterprise suppliers. From private sector companies, public sector bodies and higher education institutions to housing associations, large charities and large social enterprises, Social Procurement Connect can help you to unlock the power of your organisation’s everyday spend for the benefit of wider society and the environment.
