Community Works supports and strengthens the voluntary and community sector in east London. We bring together the public, private and voluntary sector to create new partnerships, generate more opportunity and drive the 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. We understand the issues facing east London, how our partners are working to tackle key social issues and how we, as brokers of corporate community involvement, can bring the skills, time and expertise of our corporate partners to work in partnership to tackle these issues. Our role is also to understand corporate shared value and help companies engage in the wider community through their employee volunteers, to make a real difference.
Each year ELBA’s Community Works team helps over 10,000 employee volunteers to support local organisations in east London, through a range of programmes:
- Business skills volunteering – from short-term, one-off assignments to longer-term projects, supporting community organisations to access skills such as business planning, HR, IT, project management and marketing. Also includes trusteeship, mentoring and coaching programmes. Examples of ongoing business skills volunteering projects include:
– Evolve: a collaborative partnership between Linklaters, UBS, Societe Generale and the Societe Generale UK Foundation, delivered by ELBA. It aims to build the capacity of community organisations across Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Haringey, particularly in response to the effects of COVID-19. For more information, click here.
- Team Challenges – practical, hands-on volunteering for groups, working to improve conditions in the community, from parks and gardens, to schools and community centres.
