Working with you - to connect people and projects
Connect Reading is a registered charity and membership organisation that works in partnership with businesses, the public and voluntary sectors to make a difference to the local community.
Put most simply, we work to connect people and projects.
It is our role to help businesses to engage in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and community investment projects, to ensure local support for local need.
We work predominantly in the Greater Reading area, and since our launch in 2003, we have brokered over £1,750,000 in-kind support for the community.
Our members come from a variety of sectors and include businesses such as: Brand786, Bottomline Technologies, Broad Street Mall, CBS Office Interiors, Green Park, Hilton, Kyocera Document Solutions, Novotel, Olswang, Oracle Corporation, PepsiCo, QuintilesIMS, Reading Transport, Thames Water, The Oracle, and Wipro.
Some of the high-profile projects that we organise include:
- The Pride of Reading Awards
- The Giving Tree at Christmas
- Connect Well donations to the elderly and the homeless
- Reading RESCUE - the bi-annual environmental clean-up event.
Our membership benefits include project brokerage, group volunteering days (team challenges) and skilled volunteering opportunities, and the management of donated redundant resources - such as office equipment and laptops - to local charities and schools.
We also provide opportunities for our membership network to meet and network throughout the year at our Forums and provide a monthly newsletter with a round up of the latest news, projects and opportunities coming out of Reading.
