Connect.

Enable.

Support.

We connect and enable charities and not for profit organisations across Cheshire, Warrington and Halton to reach more people and have greater impact. We do this by connecting the skills from the local business sector, offered for free, to these organisations across the area.

Established in 2013 by the former Lord Lieutenant, David Briggs, our work has a positive impact on thousands of individuals and groups that rely on the charities we support. Through our values of collaboration, understanding and passion we can all make a real and lasting difference across the county of Cheshire. 

Making a difference in Cheshire

By helping businesses and not for profit organisations work together, exchanging skills and volunteering their time, they are making a real difference to communities across Cheshire. We also work directly with Chief Executives of Cheshire charities, providing them with opportunities to develop their skills which in turn benefits the charities they work for.

With our support the charities and not for profit organisations we work with are able to reach more people, increase their effectiveness and drastically improve their impact.
