Event description

Description

Woking Borough Council, are investing in a social enterprise concept that is bringing together local companies and organisations, to look at establishing an innovative business to community project. The project is based on a similar model in operation in Rushmoor called the Community Matters Partnership Project.

The Community Matters Partnership Project has been instrumental in getting businesses together to work on supporting the needs of the local community through two fantastic employee engagement strategies - workforce volunteering and fundraising challenges. It has, as importantly, also had a huge impact on the way businesses work to support each locally alongside positive cultural change.

WBC would like to invite YOU as a Woking based business or organisations, to join us to help influence how the project might operate for and in Woking.

Woking has a diverse and entrepreneurial culture, bringing together such a wealth of skill, expertise and knowledge from a variety of industries with the right platform, could have the potential to create significant social and economic change - prosperity for all.

We therefore invite you to join us for a Focus Group session to be held at HG Wells Conference centre on Thursday 23rd November from 08.30am -10.30am. It will be a chance for your business or organisations to find out more and to input ideas into how the project may operate in Woking.
