How do we GROW?

GROW aims to change the way we buy and employ locally, to support local businesses and help create equitable and sustainable jobs.

There are four ways we can do this:

  • Spend Local (buy from local businesses to help the local economy and create jobs)
  • Spend Social (buy from businesses who employ from GROW communities, social enterprises and Indigenous businesses)
  • Be Inclusive (create safe and supportive workplaces, offer pathways and employment opportunities)
  • Advocate and Collaborate (join with the GROW Network for region wide change)
