About Us

P4P is an initiative which supports social enterprises and third sector organisations to better access public procurement and other contracting opportunities and to build partnerships and consortia.

P4P works with social enterprise, the wider third sector, partners and stakeholders across Scotland, to build capacity within the sector to better access public procurement and other contracting opportunities.

A trusted team with good knowledge of procurement and collaboration; Our ambition is to build the strength of the social enterprise sector to maximise the opportunities of public sector procurement (including forward procurement).

We have also developed a growing list of on-line resources and information to enable more social enterprises to tender together and collectively take on contracts of a greater scale.

The programme is a partnership between Senscot, Social Firms Scotland, the Scottish Community Alliance and Co-operative Development Scotland and funded through the Scottish Government’s ‘Building a Sustainable Social Enterprise Sector in Scotland – Action Plan 2017-2020’
