At Procurement Hub charitable causes are very close to our heart. We are entering our second year of being a Corporate Partner of BBC Children in Need which we are really proud of.
We have recently started allowing our members to use the social value fund to support those charities closest to them and closest to us. Through selected Frameworks, a social value contribution will be donated to charity. Part of the fund will go towards supporting BBC Children in Need through our corporate partnership. The rest of the available fund will be donated to a selected charity of the month.
Working alongside the selected charities along with our members and supply chain, we aim to make a significant contribution every year.
