Wippet

Wippet is an online purchasing platform that gives IRC operators control – over their suppliers, their buyers and their spend. It’s buying made simple.

Wippet has unlimited capacity to load an operators preferred suppliers’ catalogues of products on to the platform, so everything can be bought from one place with one login, one basket and one invoice, no matter from how many suppliers the order is placed. And all your existing contract terms can be automatically applied to your transactions, too – credit limits and terms, even your specially negotiated prices will only be visible to your employees. What’s more, with Wippet you can have a monthly buying report of all your transactions, so your purchasing information is at your fingertips.

The back-office efficiency alone of Wippet can release many precious hours that could be better spent – a real challenge in the post Covid world.

And what’s more, as Wippet grows, your organisation will have access to anonymised data from across the sector to either give you comfort you are paying a fair market price or identify opportunities to buy better. Put more simply benchmarking at your fingertips to make your buying work better for you.

In short, Wippet is a whole suite of tools to help IRC operators drive up efficiency and drive down costs.

Wippet was launched in October 2021 and is the brainchild of Matt Oxley, who previously held senior management positions for 5 large healthcare operators. Incorporated in January 2021, Matt and his two co-founders secured the significant investment needed to build a state-of-the-art buying platform and at the same time sold Wippet to Clipper Plc. – the distributor of the government’s free-issue PPE. Matt, the CEO and his two co-founders now lead this fast-growing company.

The Care Workers' Charity

The Care Workers’ Charity was first set up to help the UK’s almost 2 million care workers to get through financial crises. We provide crisis grants to care workers, signpost them to support services and work to raise the profile of their vital work.
We know this changes lives – every month the people we help tell us how a CWC grant has enabled them to face the future with renewed hope.
While financial help can be all that is needed in some cases, we also recognise that many issues faced by individuals working in care cannot be fixed by grants alone. We are working with care workers and care providers to tackle these issues, creating the support structures that people need whilst actively promoting the immense contribution that care workers make to our society.
