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.

How to get started
High impact matches
The majority of our projects are long term and often involve a range of business skills and expertise. They don’t necessarily begin that way, but as relationships develop further opportunities arise. Typical areas of support include marketing, HR, finance, operations and longer term planning.
Charity leader development and support
As well as matching charity CEOs with mentors from the business sector, we host Connect, Lead & Learn. Meeting on a quarterly basis, we provide a forum for the leaders of Cheshire-based charities in which to share problems, learn best practice from others and take time to develop their own leadership skills.
Like any organisation, charities are often hit by unexpected projects for which they need particular expertise that might not already exist within the charity. These types of project are ideal for a business to make a quick but significant impact
