Social Procurement is on the rise. According to a 2016 report by Social Traders, the biggest opportunity for the growth and further development of social enterprise in Australia is social procurement - organisations choosing to purchase a social outcome when they buy a good or a service.Eidos, in partnership with the English Family Foundation, are facilitating an important national conversation around this issue. Eidos are hosting the Social Procurement Challenge to crowdsource the best ideas from across Australia and solve a challenge that can boost the economy and the impact of our community organisations. It's exciting for us, and exciting for you - there's $25,000 up for grabs. In the final weeks prior to submissions being due, we hosted a webinar series with leading thinkers and doers, to facilitate discussion around the challenges and opportunities facing Social Procurement in Australia. These webinars have been designed to help you engage with this challenge. If you're up for it - you may also be inspired to go on and solve the Challenge and receive the $25,000 contribution towards your idea!
