£1,000,000 worth of help
We are delighted to announce that Connect Reading has now brokered over £1,000,000 of in-kind support to the local community. Read more.
From team challenges to individual volunteering and in-kind donations of meeting room use or printing facilities there are so many ways that your organisation can help the local community using the existing skills and resources.
From mentoring, work experience placements and shadowing to payroll giving and fundraising we put you in touch with local projects and initiatives to make the best use of resources.
Connect Reading created a free Go4Green code to help businesses in their environmental sustainability journeys. Keeping up to date with local environmental events to recycling redundant office items into the voluntary and community sector we help you connect.
Reading has one of the UK's highest economic activity rates at 85%. Connect Reading works closely with Reading UK CIC and Reading Chamber of Commerce to ensure that we can maintain these high activity rates together.
Connect Reading are sincerely grateful to Article 10 Design who have donated their expertise and resources to develop our website.
