Information for suppliers

Our suppliers in the UK and overseas deliver the wide range of goods and services we need to support our work, including humanitarian supplies, goods for resale in our shops network, corporate supplies, IT, marketing services and much more.

In line with our organisational beliefs and values, we only work with suppliers who share our commitment to ethical purchasing.  

Ethical purchasing

We seek to purchase goods and services that are produced under labour conditions that meet the Ethical Trade Initiative Base Code (ETI) and therefore do not involve the abuse or exploitation of any person. We also seek to work with suppliers who have the least negative impact on climate change and the environment. Prospective suppliers should first read our Ethical and Environmental Policy.
