The Rotherham Business Growth Board has launched the Rotherham Buy Local Initiative – an exciting opportunity to improve the success of local business in winning new business opportunities.
This is being led by Barry Mellor, a Non-Executive Director on the Board of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, together with an enthusiastic team including the support and assistance of Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce.
The first phase of the Rotherham Buy Local Initiative is focusing in on the public sector spend in the Rotherham area to see how much business already goes to local business and to come up with an action plan to increase this. Rotherham Council, The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, Rotherham College and Dearne Valley College in total spend some £150 million per annum with suppliers and are all on board to see how they can benefit from local suppliers, increase the share going to local business and help the Rotherham economy.
