What’s it about?

Specialist Autism Services & Business in the Community are working in partnership to host Leeds’ very first free to attend Business networking event with a focus on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). These are scheduled quarterly and held at John Lewis’ Community Hub in Leeds City Centre.

We welcome all local businesses and professionals along to these events, where we will be inviting 3 local charities with different missions and aims. This is not only an opportunity to network with other private sector businesses – you will also be able to meet a selection of local voluntary sector groups and hear about the work they are doing in the community. If you are looking for options to fulfil your company’s corporate social responsibilities then this is an ideal forum for you.

The way our networking will work:

– Welcoming speech from Business in the Community:
– 3 local charities / community groups will get the chance to talk about the fantastic work they do here in Leeds and potential areas of support they need.(no more than 5 minutes each).
– Each person will get a chance to speak about what they do to the group and what they would like to achieve from attending (2 minutes per person).

– Each company will then be asked to choose one of the three charities to support for the month whether this is through mentoring, volunteering opportunities, donation of a service, financial support or more.
– People will be able to network whilst helping themselves to free refreshments.
