Creating value for & investing in our communities
This pioneering start-up led to Procure Plus, now a market leader in the housing procurement field, buying over £200m of goods and services annually.
Our long experience means we know the sector inside-out. We’re owned by social housing providers and our board members all come from the landlords that we serve – housing is in our DNA. And we’re not-for-profit, so any surplus we make goes straight back into our communities to train and develop people who find themselves distanced from the employment market. Over the last five years, we’ve helped more than 2,500 people into work.
We are from and for housing, so understand the challenges social housing providers face and are here to support them, sharing best practice and information at every stage. With our dedication and expertise, we make a real difference to our communities, one project and individual at a time.
Our passion lies in innovating solutions to stay ahead of market demand, ensuring value, transparency and quality. With ever evolving systems to support innovation and keep pace with an ever-changing market.
