We are running a series of events to enable voluntary organisations to meet both commercial and voluntary organisations who are planning to develop a supply chain and bid directly to Her Majesty's Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) for contracts within the Dynamic Framework.
These events, delivered in partnership with Eastside Primetimers, provide the opportunity to hear about the approach being taken by potential lead contractors and put questions to them.
This event is for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME*) specialist organisations and will include prime providers that are planning to include BAME specialist organisations in their supply chains.
The aim is to provide a platform for you to understand more about opportunities and challenges in joining a supply chain led by a prime provider.
This event is only open to voluntary organisations interested in developing partnerships or being included in a supply chain. As we are expecting a lot of interest please only book one place per organisation per event.
*We acknowledge that the term BAME can be problematic as it refers to a group of people who are far from homogenous. The intersection of race, ethnicity, faith, and culture makes social identities multi-faceted and shifting – the experiences of individuals within these groups will vary. Wherever possible, we seek to be specific when describing groups of people but at times use the term BAME – albeit reluctantly – to describe inequality and discrimination across groups when necessary.
