Business Connectors boosting communities

Business in the Community is the Prince’s Responsible Business Network. Its members work together to tackle a wide range of issues that are essential to building a fairer society and a more sustainable future.

One of the key programmes of the charity is the Business Connector Programme, which was borne out of a desire by businesses to do more to connect with and provide a business response to community need across the UK.  

The Department for Work and Pensions has seconded four talented individuals to the Business Connector programme in Lancashire covering Pendle, Burnley, Preston and Leyland.  United Utilities have also seconded a Business Connector to cover Whitehaven & Workington in Cumbria. 

Carolyn Booth, Business Connector for Pendle, said: “This is a really great opportunity DWP have given me, to spend a year working with businesses, voluntary organisations and the community to make Pendle a better place to live and work.” 

Business Connectors address local community needs by creating mutually beneficial partnerships with a range of sectors including businesses, the voluntary sector and community groups.
