How we buy goods and services

Save the Children UK’s financial vision is that every pound counts for children, and through our procurement activity we are committed to reducing the charity’s operating costs and increasing our return on investment so that maximum resource can be spent on programmes which directly benefit children.

We buy a wide range of goods and services to deliver our charitable operations and UK programmes, and we endeavour to engage with suppliers who share our values of:

We take personal responsibility for using our resources efficiently, achieving measurable results, and being accountable to supporters, partners and, most of all, children.

We are demanding of ourselves and our colleagues, set high goals and are committed to improving the quality of everything we do for children. 

We respect and value each other, thrive on our diversity, and work with partners to leverage our global strength in making a difference for children. 

We are open to new ideas, embrace change, and take disciplined risks to develop sustainable solutions for and with children.

We aspire to live to the highest standards of personal honesty and behaviour; we never compromise our reputation and always act in the best interests of children.

Procurement for our international programming is managed by Save the Children International.

We expect all our suppliers to abide by our Ethical Standards and Requirements. These encompass our policies on Child Safeguarding, Modern Slavery, Data Protection and Anti Bribery and Corruption.
