We want to help you save time and money when buying business goods and services, so that you can focus on the things that really matter to you and your tenants, whether that’s building more homes or investing in regeneration programmes.

Today, more than ever, procurement has a vital role to play in supporting and strengthening our public sector and we know that for all organisations within the social housing sector, tight control over budgets and resources is a key priority.

You can use our commercial solutions free of charge, and we’re committed to helping you achieve the best possible value and generate cashable savings for your organisation by leveraging our category expertise and national buying power. We recognise the importance of social value for your residents and communities and have put in place the deals and support to allow you to place this at the heart of your procurement.

We want to empower you to get the best possible value from your procurement and join the growing number of housing providers who are making great savings with CCS every year.
