Construction News Image
A collaboration between Morrison Construction and P4P (Partnership for Procurement) has resulted in two local social enterprises winning work on the supply chain of the leading Scottish contractor.

Formed in 2017, P4P has wasted no time providing support and expertise to third sector organisations, as a partnership between four national organisations in Scotland: Senscot, Social Firms Scotland, Scottish Community Alliance and Co-operative Development Scotland with funding provided by the Scottish Government.

Through P4P, Morrison Construction was introduced to local charities, Edinburgh Community Food and Forth Valley Community Focus CIC (Community Interest Company).

Both social enterprises successfully qualified to become part of Morrison Construction's trusted supply chain, earning work with the company in the process.
