Partner Event

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) and NHS Lanarkshire have a duty to ensure that their spending power brings greater benefits for all parts of local communities. NHSGGC and NHS Lanarkshire invite your business to join the Supplier Development Programme to support community wealth building initiatives by inviting local businesses in your existing networks to bid for public sector contracts and supply chain opportunities.

If your organisation can help NHSGGC and NHS Lanarkshire progress towards putting diversity at the core of their supply chains to include businesses led by, for, and with people with protected characteristics, you are cordially invited to participate in this webinar!

Working with NHSGGC and NHS Lanarkshire, SDP will deliver a programme of free tender training webinars for businesses, social enterprises and supported businesses – and we need to get the word out! 

Even if you think what’s involved in this project may not be specifically aimed at your organisation, we are inviting you to promote it to the many local businesses you may know that currently support your work – businesses that may be owned or led by women, minority, disabled and LGBTQ+ individuals.
