Business In The Community

Connecting businesses and community organisations to drive local impact across the UK

Our goal is to build healthy, diverse and skilled communities, which enable all members of the community to prosper and thrive. How do we do this?

Business in the Community harnesses the skills and time of our 600+ business members to support the needs of local community organisations across the UK. Our team broker and nurture connections between our members and community organisations to facilitate positive social change, across the UK.
Through our programmes community organisations can access free one-to-one support, consultancy, pro-bono services and skills training from Business in the Community’s network of business members.
