ArcBlue and the GROW Gippsland team is partnering with Social Traders to personally invite you to attend the ‘Social Procurement in Regional Victoria’ event in Gippsland.

This event will provide you with the basic principles of social procurement and the impact its growth can have in the region. The recent growth in social procurement in Victoria provides significant opportunities to local, social enterprises and indigenous businesses. This has occurred as business and government are looking to increase their procurement spend to generate positive community impact.

Featured topics include:

  • Principles behind social enterprise and social procurement
  • Victorian government’s Social Procurement Framework, and its impact on Gippsland’s social enterprises, businesses and not-for-profit organisations
  • GROW (Growing Regional Opportunities for Work) Gippsland’s initiative of bringing business, government and community organisations and individuals together to address and support disadvantage in areas of high unemployment
  • Social Traders social enterprise certification and buyer membership

The ‘Social Procurement in Regional Victoria’ Gippsland event will provide you with the opportunity to contribute to the growth of social enterprise and social procurement in your local region.
