Transport for Wales, Development Bank of Wales, Public Health Wales, NHS Shared Services Partnership (NWSSP) are working with Social Business Connect to look at ways it can increase its spend with social businesses and embed social value across its major contracts.
All five organisations will be raised awareness of the Buy Social for a Better World campaign last week, which was backed by Welsh actor and patron of Social Enterprise UK, Michael Sheen.
Social enterprises are businesses set up reinvest the money they make back into their social or environmental cause. There are over 2,000 of these businesses in Wales contributing an estimated £3 billion to the Welsh economy (£60 billion to the UK economy) and employing around 55,000 people*.
