Public Procurement and Property
Supported businesses – changing lives
There are many ways the power of procurement can bring positive change. One of those ways is through the use of our Supported Businesses framework.
Supported businesses are social enterprises whose main aim is to integrate disabled or disadvantaged people socially and professionally. Their workforce must be at least 30% disabled or disadvantaged.
Making a difference to the community
Award a contract through our Supported Businesses framework and you’ll be helping to change lives. Not only will you have an effect on the individuals involved, but you’ll also have a positive effect on their family and loved ones, increasing social value in the wider community.
