Spend Social

As well as choosing to buy local, you can add even more bang for your buck if you buy from businesses who employ people from GROW communities.

Your support enables these businesses to give jobs to local people who are doing it tough.

For your next purchase or project, check to see if there is an Indigenous Business, social or disability enterprise who can meet your needs.

Or you can use a for-profit business who employs local people with barriers to employment, including many GROW signatories. Check out Who is involved or email the GROW Team for contacts.

To embed these change in your business, you can add Social Procurement clauses in tenders and contracts, more information is here.
