ACRE are proud to be partnering with Social Traders in the ‘Social Procurement in Regional Victoria’ series – an event that provides you with the basic principles of social procurement and the impact its growth can have in the region.

Join us in Wodonga on Wednesday 20 March 2019 to learn more about how the recent growth in social procurement in Victoria provides significant opportunities to local social enterprises and indigenous businesses as business and government are looking to increase their procurement spend to generate positive community impact.

Featured topics of this event include:

  • Principles behind social enterprise and social procurement
  • Victorian government’s Social Procurement Framework, and its impact on Gippsland’s social enterprises, businesses and not-for-profit organisations
  • Growing Regional Opportunities for Work (GROW Gippsland) initiative bringing business, government and community organisations and individuals together to address and support disadvantage in areas of high unemployment
  • Social Traders social enterprise certification and buyer membership
