Building on our successes with Business in the Community


After a rigorous application process (and a few weeks of keeping our fingers very tightly crossed), we are delighted to share that we have been accepted as a social enterprise partner on Business in the Community’s arc programme. arc was created to match corporate partners with innovative social enterprises, with the aim of supporting economic growth and job creation through practical business support.

While arc has been running in London successfully since the end of 2011, supporting over 150 social enterprises and creating over 4,400 jobs as a result, it only expanded to the Yorkshire region at the beginning of 2016, so we are over the moon to be able to access tailored support from arc corporate partners in our area (Asda and Interserve).

Watch this space for the latest news and updates on our progress with arc!
