Discover the UK's biggest procurement platform of social and environmental suppliers

Introducing The Supply Change Platform

Our platform hosts social and environmental suppliers ready to deliver a range of goods and services from cleaning to coffee. The platform enables organisations to find the best supplier for their needs and get in touch at the click of a button.

How does the platform work?

  1. Buyers are provided with an annual licence to log in to the platform.

  2. Users search for social suppliers via their location, trade and impact area.

  3. Social supplier profiles include information such as trade, impact, insurances, policies and certificates.

  4. Buyers can request an introduction to the supplier and Supply Change facilitates this. 

  5. Buyers can request copies of policies and insurance certificates from Supply Change.

We were pleased to work with Supply Change on the Barking and Dagenham Meet the Buyer event with a focus on local social enterprises. The team were very professional in organising the attendance and managing the online event. Their involvement made it a smooth and enjoyable experience for all involved and we would certainly work with them again.
