If you’re looking to make lasting connections within the Bankside community, why not sign up to June’s Community Connections event?

This is an excellent networking opportunity, joining local businesses and charities together to reveal the shared benefits of community engagement. 

Whether you manage your company’s Corporate Social Responsibility or simply considering ways you or your organisation could get involved with your local community, this event is just for you! 

  • Leave with inspiring new connections from meeting local community organisations from our community 'speed networking’ session. Discover many ways that you as an individual or as a business can volunteer locally, both short and long-term. 

  • Be inspired by our three guest speakers as they present their case for community engagement. 

    • Hear from our brand new Community Partner, Construction Youth Trust as they launch their current volunteer programme. 

    • Bankside based business, Forster Communications will highlight their volunteer involvement with Events Academy, outlining the company benefits of volunteering from an employee engagement angle. 

    • Better Bankside's Urban Forest Manager, Valerie Beirne will discuss 'The Bankside Neighbourhood Plan' - a planning policy project which sets out to inform future developers and landowners about local community needs. Complete a simple survey and have your say.

  • Enjoy breakfast with your Bankside neighbours at Glaziers Hall, an impressive venue with some well established connections within the local community.

Benefits of community engagement include employee development opportunities, building employee pride in their workplace, positive stories to share with customers, suppliers and partners and tapping into new markets.

So join us this June and find out how your business could start working with local charities supporting people who live, work and study in the area for mutual benefit. To secure your place please info [at] (subject: Community%20Connections%20rsvp) (RSVP here.)
