The Charities Buying Group is a Community Interest Company and as such all profits go towards creating jobs for war veterans across the UK. Funding and donations allow us to train and either employ directly Veterans to help charities save money.

We provide a dedicated service operated for the benefit of ALL charities and not for profit organisations offering a wide range of buying agreements that are designed to help all organisations reduce expenditure and, by reducing cost help these organisations make better use of their money for the benefit of the missions/objectives they were created for.

The CBG was formed in 2002 after reviewing how little support charities get in solving their purchasing issues, particularly small charities who do not have the buying power of larger organisations. By using the collective buying power of the CBG we can support all charities as we truly believe that by buying more efficiently more of their money can be used for the purpose it is intended, meeting their service objectives and more importantly helping those people who need the help most in terms of care and welfare. This is the true vision of the Charities Buying Group. 

Currently we have over 10,000 registered users from over 9,000 charities all benefiting from our purchasing expertise, the numbers of new members grows every day. 

This service is available to all charities and not for profit organisations free of charge; as we do not believe that organisations should pay for buying advice.So, why not join now and start cutting cost.

Having worked with the Charities Buying Group over the past few months (and their associated charity; Jobs for Veterans), I can only relay positives about what the team are doing here. Not only are they providing a free service to charitable and not-for-profit organisations/initiatives with the means to minimise overheads, these services help enterprises in making better use of their own funding, all the while, resulting in helping veterans get back into work.

We have now struck up a strong working relationship with the CBG/Jobs for Veterans and will continue to grow this in the common weeks, months and years.
