Synergy works on behalf of its participants to source, negotiate and enter into contracts that are individually tailored for the participant’s needs.

We deliver competitive pricing along with great service and risk reduction through partnering with quality suppliers.

Synergy is also about more than just contracts: we network and undertake professional development together, regularly meeting to learn from industry and develop our skills as procurement and business professionals.


Synergy commenced in 2003 as a collaboration between organisations associated with the Uniting Church in South Australia as a way to gain efficiencies and save money.

Synergy is a collective buying group, established by the Uniting Church in Australia Synod of South Australia. It combines the buying power of 17 Uniting Church associated organisations in the aged care, health care, community, school and church sectors to obtain the best value for money from suppliers.

Synergy currently manages 16 contracts valued at over $25m per annum. Contracts cover the categories of facilities management, energy, health and aged care services and business services.

Aside from procurement and contract management, Synergy also runs events throughout the year to bring member organisations together to network, collaborate and learn.
