Established in 2006 by local businesses, Connect Dacorum is a membership organisation and part of Community Action Dacorum, a registered charity. We create, facilitate and broker business engagement and support to benefit the local community as well as connecting all our members to create meaningful partnerships.
Connect Dacorum makes this engagement an easy process for businesses removing some of the barriers to engaging in corporate social responsibility and community involvement projects. Our service ensures the community really benefit from the effort invested by our partners
We work closely with the voluntary, community and public sectors to understand the needs of the community and create innovative ways that business and their employees can get involved in. This relates both to social, economic and environmental issues.
We are widely respected and utilised by local businesses for our unique knowledge, information, advice and expertise as a way to help the local community. We offer consultancy and membership packages to businesses.
Our activities are based on in-kind support, helping charities with your skills, time and resources as well as reciprocal benefit relationships such as sponsorship.
Membership of Connect Dacorum is through subscriptions from all of the companies mentioned on the Our members members page.
Dacorum Borough Council kindly provide free office accommodation and IT support for the project.
Our Vision: To inspire businesses to work in partnership with voluntary and public sector organisations for the benefit of people who work, live and learn in Dacorum.
