Millions of pounds each year are spent in publicly funded contracts. We believe more of these should be awarded locally - and want to work with you to make it happen


Housing associations, local authorities, are now using their buying power to benefit the economy and communities they serve. This is creating new supply chain opportunities for local businesses

The website will equip you the examples, contacts and resources to take the next step

The Buy Local Buy Social project is a partnership of regional buyers and experts, sponsored by Bath & North East Somerset Council, and delivered by Assembly



The Buy Local Buy Social project is a collaboration that aims to inspire, educate and equip organisations to deliver social value through their procurement activity


We are building a resource library to showcase the best case studies of how organisations have delivered social value through procurement, profiles of organisations committed to achieving social outcomes and signposts to funders and support
