We're Giving Back...so others can move forward.

We're striving to do things differently with a more social purpose. Any surplus we generate is reinvested into social housing, social value and charitable projects. We aim to make a difference as a commercial business with a social heart.

At Procurement Hub charitable causes are very close to our heart. Through our new initiative, we have recently started allowing our members to use the social value fund to support the charities closest to them and closest to us. Through selected Frameworks, a social value contribution will be donated. Half of the fund will go towards supporting BBC Children in Need through our partnership. The other half of the available fund will be donated to a selected charity of the month. 

Working alongside the below selected charities along with our members and supply chain, we aim to make a significant contribution to charity every year. Each month we will raise awareness for a different charity.

August - Guide Dogs.

Guide Dogs has been operating in the UK since 1931, to help blind and partially sighted people. Today, Guide Dogs is the world’s largest breeder and trainer of working dogs. Thanks to their dedicated staff, volunteers and vital donations, the charity has now helped over 29,000 people to achieve life-changing independence.

Over the coming years Guide Dogs are looking to increase the number of guide dog partnerships, but also developing a broader range of services that will help more people who are blind and partially sighted to get out and about on their own terms. Their ambition is a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live their lives to the full.

We are delighted to be partnering with Guide Dogs for the forthcoming month and we will keep you all updated with details of our support!

September - British Heart Foundation.

For September, half of our social value fund will be donated to British Heart Foundation to support their vision of a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases. A world without heartbreak.

Heart and circulatory diseases still kill 1 in 4 in the UK. The British Heart Foundation is a charity that funds over £100 million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases, the things that cause them and their risk factors. Heart diseases, stroke, vascular dementia & diabetes. They're all connected, and they're all under their microscope. This research has given us machines that can restart hearts, the ability to fix arteries in tiny babies, the power to give someone a heart they weren’t born with, and so much more.
