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. Part of the fund will go towards supporting BBC Children in Need through our partnership. The remaining available fund will be donated to a selected charity of the month. 

Working alongside these charities and 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.

December - Cancer Research UK.

Cancer Research UK is our charity of the month partner for the month of December. Cancer Research UK funds scientists, doctors and nurses to help beat cancer sooner. They also provide cancer information to the public. Their pioneering work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has helped save millions of lives. With no government funding for their research, it’s only thanks to people's generosity that they've helped double cancer survival rates in just 40 years.

January - Family Fund.

As part of our focus on social value, we launched our giving back initiative last year. Each month we have been donating to a different charitable partner. This month, our charity of the month partner is Family Fund. We are so pleased to support them in helping families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. 

Family Fund’s mission is to help low income families in the UK raising disabled or seriously ill children to improve their quality of life and allow them to have the same choices, quality of life, opportunities and aspirations as other families.

They provide grants for a wide range of items and services to families, that they could not otherwise afford or access. These include washing machines, sensory toys, family breaks, bedding, tablets, furniture, outdoor play equipment, clothing and computers. It can be a struggle financially, emotionally and physically for families raising a disabled or seriously ill child, and these grants help break down many of the barriers families face, improving their quality of life and easing the additional daily pressures.
