Slough Business Community Partnership (SBCP) was formed in 2001 as a ‘not for profit’ company limited by guarantee. Since that time, it has grown to become one of the leading Business Community Partnerships in the UK. The Partnership goes from strength to strength and now has an active membership of 20 companies and organisations which represent large, medium and small businesses, the Council and the Voluntary Sector.

We are a unique organisation that promotes the use of business skills to support the development of community organisations by creating beneficial and meaningful relationships.

SBCP can help as we understand the needs and requirements of our charity and voluntary sector and to identify suitable projects. We match their needs to the resources of local businesses and promote requests through our extensive business network to find a satisfactory solution. By encouraging businesses to support vital projects we can help them to be valued and engaged in their communities.

We can help businesses to develop CSR policies and strategies by putting into practice agreed aims and objectives businesses can instantly profit from establishing a CSR agenda. We are able to provide opportunities to help projects, offer support, time and expertise whilst giving staff the opportunity to develop their skills whilst benefitting the community.

 Partnership Manager

I am passionate about connecting people and skills.  Having gained a wealth of knowledge in the private sector for over 30 years, I was  keen to enter into a community-based role that would use my practical and personal skills.  I thoroughly enjoy my role at SBCP, connecting our members with the wider Slough community –  groups / charities and education.  Looking at new ways for our members to give back to their working environment whilst benefitting this sector and raising awareness.  Always keen to work with our individual business groups to align their volunteering objectives with their corporate values.  I collate the extensive Challenge Calendar quarterly and keep very busy with our ever-growing membership group activities.  My organisational and admin skills are key to developing this varied and interesting role.  I enjoy meeting new people, learning and looking at ways in which we can expand the diversity of our volunteering opportunities further.
