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)
