About Sector Connector

Originally developed by North Tyneside VODA, Sector Connector is a successful project which supports businesses to get more involved in the local community.

In North Tyneside alone, Sector Connector has so far involved almost 100 businesses, ranging from self-employed individuals and SMEs to major local employers, and has helped over 130 local community groups through the provision of free workshops, donated time and resources, expert advice and employee volunteering schemes. A wide range of businesses have been involved from fields including marketing and PR, graphic design, IT hardware and network support, business development consultancy, construction and maintenance, financial and legal services.

Many business owners and their employees are keen to get involved as a way of raising their profiles, developing their own skills, demonstrating their ethical values and building relationships with potential new clients. Perhaps most importantly, Sector Connector helps business people to “put something back” into the communities where they work and live.
