How can SBCP help your company to develop its CSR?
SBCP by acting as a broker to connect the skills of the business community with the needs of the local community

We are engaging more people in our Community Programme by encouraging more employees to become actively involved in the community by undertaking activities for the benefit of voluntary sector organisations in Slough.
We hold regular meetings that provide excellent networking opportunities and the chance to meet and learn from like-minded businesses and representatives from the Community and Public sectors.
- Heathrow Business Summit
SBCP supports Heathrow Airport Limited by encouraging more local businesses to take part in the annual Heathrow Business Summit event that offers the opportunity for local businesses to meet ‘one to one’ with major buyers from the airport and surrounding area.

Key SBCP Achievements in 2016
This year has been a fantastic year where more companies than ever have contributed to the the Slough Community. Below are just some of the achievements from the SBCP’s Programmes from the last year.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED:
SBCP’s Challenge Calendar
We produce our Challenge Calendar quarterly and it provides our business members with a range of activities and the opportunity to support a community organisation. Businesses can use this as an opportunity for team building whilst at the same time helping the local community through tasks such as painting a local community centre or rejuvenating a local school garden.
Business 2 Community Skills events
SBCP provides excellent opportunities for employees to use their business skills and expertise to provide much needed support and guidance to key managers from local charities/voluntary groups. It could be that a company’s employees might have expertise/skills in HR, Marketing, Finance or Business planning and these might be skills that a voluntary organisation might not have or be able to afford.
For the business there are benefits to be realised by enhancing an employee’s performance, potential or by strengthening the person’s management capability. There are also benefits for the individual as part of their own personal development to improve their relationship and coaching skills. SBCP successfully identified 25 business mentors from local companies who have worked with key managers from local charities/groups to help increase their confidence, problem solving and ability to manage their resources better.
