GROW Networks and Groups

GROW Compact Action Network

The GROW Compact Action Network commenced in 2014 as a direct result of the consultations for the GROW Strategic Plan. Formerly known as the Social Procurement Network, the members developed the inaugural GROW Compact, supported the development of the Alcoa Social Procurement Toolkit, and have been instrumental in all GROW research around procurement. Founding members include Barwon Water, City of Greater Geelong, Deakin and Karingal, and the Network has now expanded to include representation from all Compact signatories. It currently has 40+ members.

The purpose of the Compact Action Network is to support the knowledge and practice of social and local procurement of all GROW participants.

GROW Data Reference Group

The GROW Data Reference Group will support the progression of the GROW Shared Measurement Framework (more information soon).

Barwon South West Jobs Network

This network meets monthly to share best practice and local intelligence for the employment services who focus on working with disadvantaged job seekers.
