Measures to help small charities get into the public services supply chain
Earlier this week, Government Minister for Civil Society, Rob Wilson announced three new measures as part of a programme to help tackle the challenge of getting small charities into the public sector supply chain. They are:
- Developing a placed based Public Service Incubator that helps small charities get commissioned.
- Exploring the development of a commissioning kitemark that will set out a best practice standard which commissioners will be able to use to show their commitment to small charity-friendly commissioning.
- Recruiting a voluntary, community and social enterprise crown representative. This role will centrally champion commissioning practices that help small charities contribute effectively to public services. It will also function as an intermediary between government and the voluntary sector.
