Business2Business was set up 31 years ago to tackle unemployment and social exclusion. We recognised that local people were often not able to benefit from jobs in the local economy, and that additional support was needed to help bridge the gap. 

We are always keen to work with other organisations:

  • on an informal basis to extend the range of support, to which we can signpost our customers;

  • on a strategic basis, to establish joint projects and bidding with organisations that share our values and performance, and possess complementary skills, infrastructure and experience to our own. 

  • as a sub-contractor to other prime organisations to whom we can offer our specialist expertise; or 

  • as the prime organisation ourselves to bring together supply chain partners that complement one another to better meet customers’ diverse and complex needs.

Please see our current opportunities if you wish to apply to join our supply chain

If you would like to give your views about additional forms of support that we might make available through the BBO Brighter Futures project, please complete the consultation form and return to Rob Gray, Strategic Development Officer, at
