Changing the way business is done in Gippsland.

GROW (Growing Regional Opportunities for Work) Gippsland is an innovative and collaborative approach to local economic development and jobs growth in the region, achieved through local and social procurement and inclusive employment. If we all work collectively to make small changes to the way we do business we can create a significant positive impact on the region.

Inspiring Local Action

GROW Gippsland inspires local businesses and local leaders to change the way they procure and employ to build a stronger local economy.

GROW is collaborative program that brings together partner organisations and program participants from a range of public and private sector businesses who commit to a series of actions designed increase local and inclusive employment outcomes.

Creating New Opportunities

GROW Gippsland focuses on job creation in key target communities through procurement initiatives, and increasing inclusive employment opportunities. The program seeks to create new opportunities for employment of long-term unemployed, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, young people and people with disabilities.

Find out how you can get involved in creating new opportunities to build stronger local employment outcomes.

Growing the local economy

GROW works with local businesses and businesses operating across Gippsland to direct more spending into the local economy. Even a small shift in spend from outside the region to within the region can have a significant impact.  If all Gippsland businesses increased the proportion of local spend by 5% to local economy would grow by $700 million.

GROW members have access to a bank of procurement guides, tools, templates and systems to assist in increasing local spend and growing the local economy, find out more here.
