Programmes to help you engage

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.



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

We hold four Skills events for the benefit of voluntary sector organisations each year that provides the delegates with information and guidance on a range of topics from Cloud Computing to Risk Management. These events are free and we invite business people to share their expertise and ‘best’ practice via short skills presentations. We regularly have in 15-20 voluntary groups attending these events.

Business Mentoring and School Governors

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.  ​
