Amey spends nearly £1m with social enterprises

The Wild Hearts organisation provides office supplies while helping young people to develop business and employability skills.

Infrastructure and support service provider Amey has announced it spent nearly £1m with social enterprises last year.

In May 2017, the company became involved in the Buy Social Corporate Challenge, which encourages UK companies to open up their supply chains to social enterprises.

Since then, Amey has formed partnerships with Belu, Recycling Lives and Wild Hearts, all enterprises which help those most in need in the UK and overseas.

Amey spent £930,000 with social enterprises in 2017.

Work is now under way to secure an even greater spend for 2018, in the hopes that Amey accounts across the UK can work with social enterprises which help their nearby communities.

Emily Davies, head of social impact at Amey, said: “Joining the Buy Social Corporate Challenge has focused our commitment, raised awareness to our employees and wider stakeholders, and provided the leadership platform and network that’s needed for organisations to work together and really make a difference.”
