Helping businesses make a difference in their local communities

The Sector Connector project supports businesses to develop their Corporate Social Responsibility and get more involved with the community in North Tyneside by linking them with local groups and organisations that need help.

Whether it’s the donation of time, sharing skills, delivering workshops or employee volunteering, Sector Connector can help businesses to make a positive impact on the people and environment around them, whilst enjoying the benefits of giving something back. If you are a voluntary sector group looking for support, expertise or practical help from local businesses, view the Current Offers available through the project or contact us if you have a specific request.

Areas that businesses have offered their support in include:

  • Finance and accounts
  • Health, safety and risk management
  • Design and branding
  • Human resource
  • Web design, development and hosting
  • Marketing and PR, including rebranding
  • Business planning
  • Insurance and legal issues
  • Property renovation, management and maintenance
  • Meeting rooms on loan
  • Surplus furniture and equipment

Awards scheme

As a way of recognising those businesses that have supported the community through the project, Sector Connector coordinates Community Friendly Business Awards. These are given on three levels: Gold, Silver and Bronze based on the amount of time or support offered. Qualifying businesses receive a certificate, official branding and lots of positive publicity!
