Community Works supports and strengthens the voluntary and community sector in east London. We bring together the public, private and voluntary sector to create partnerships, generate opportunity and drive regeneration and growth.
Community Works brings together the public, private and voluntary sector to create new partnerships, generate more opportunity and drive regeneration and growth of east London communities.
We do this by supporting businesses to bring their time, skills and expertise to support the vast, varied and stretched resources of our local community and voluntary sector. Our programmes are needs-led, helping to address some of the biggest challenges facing our society. Our role is also to understand corporate shared value and help companies engage in the wider community through their employee volunteers, to learn more about the challenges in east London and the third sector.
ELBA’s Community Works teams have a range of programmes that are delivered between Connect and Team Challenges:
- Connect (skills based volunteering) – Connecting the skills and time of the corporate sector with charities and social enterprises that allows for shared learning facilitated through workshops, consultancy advice and networking.
- Team Challenges (practical volunteering) – practical, hands-on volunteering for groups, working to improve conditions in the community, from parks and gardens, to schools and community centres.
