The Halton Foundation aims to forge better links between local voluntary groups who need help, with local businesses who may be able to provide it.
This may include access to grants and funds but also in-kind support too, such as free professional advice, transport, equipment or website design.
The partnership is led by Halton Chamber of Commerce & Enterprise, Halton & St. Helens Voluntary and Community Action (VCA), and Halton Borough Council, in partnership with the Community Foundation for Lancashire and Merseyside (CFLM), and in association with Cheshire Connect and Business in the Community (BITC).
The aim is to match business offers with community needs.
The Halton Foundation would like to hear from any business which has skills, services, equipment, funds or help available.
It also wants to hear from any local voluntary community organisation or charity which needs assistance of any kind.
Halton businesses who believe they have something to offer should, in the first instance, contact Paula Cain, Halton Chamber chief executive, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Charities, voluntary or community groups who have specific needs should contact Sally Yeoman, chief executive of Halton & St. Helens VCA, for further advice – Email: email@example.com
