The Salvation Army
Beyond Just Procurement
We’ve built a procurement function from scratch, transforming how The Salvation Army purchases, delivering multimillion-pound savings which are invested directly back into helping people in need. We turned resistant stakeholders into advocates along our journey to become the best procurement function in the charity sector. Going beyond traditional procurement through raising awareness and identification of modern slavery, bringing 70,000 books and toys to disadvantaged families at Christmas and enabling homeless people to gain skills, employment and routes to turning their lives around. Now in the wake of Covid-19 we’ve pivoted towards food procurement – delivering food parcels to 25,000 vulnerable families.
