Connect Reading has been the business community partnership for Reading since 2003. We are a membership organisation that brokers and manages partnerships between the business, public and voluntary sectors to create a better quality of life for all in the Greater Reading area.
We have an innovative, cross-sector approach to in-kind support rather than fundraising, provide businesses with insight into local priorities with bespoke CSR advice, information and guidance on ways they can help Reading.
Our high profile projects include
• The Giving Tree at Christmas
• Reading RESCUE – the environmental clean-up event in Spring &Autumn
We work closely with our charity members to identify projects that need business support (time, resources or skills), and then match them with an appropriate business.
