Locality’s Community Contracting Unit (CCU) supports community enterprises to bid successfully for public sector contracts.

The CCU also helps local authorities to create policies which increase the number of community organisations taking part in the procurement process.

The best choice for public sector service delivery

Our members and organisations like them are directly accountable to the communities they serve. They can offer innovation, flexibility and added value in a way which other organisations cannot.

We believe community enterprises are the best choice for public sector service delivery.

Our members spend more time than ever on contracting and we are working hard to support them to bid for and win public sector contracts.

We are also lobbying the government to create a procurement environment which enables more community enterprise organisations to take part. See the public services commissioning page in our policy section to find out more.
