How the community notice board works

The connected communities noticeboard helps our community organisations and businesses connect together and to start actioning support to those most in need. Bringing Social Value to life in Cheshire East. 

If you are a local business or contractor

If you are a local business who can offer business support, materials or labour or are a contractor who wants to fulfil corporate social value, you can do this by taking just a few minutes to join our noticeboard.

Some examples of how you can do this include:

  • provide business support - marketing advice, business start up advice, HR support
  • mentoring - help a local business to thrive by sharing your skills and knowledge
  • one off volunteer opportunities - help to paint a room or hold an event
  • providing equipment - paint, wood, soil, gardening equipment etc
  • support as project - build a community garden, help to renovate unused space, borrow a trades person for a few hours
  • hold a fundraiser - company car wash, sponsored event

If no one needs the help you can provide at the present time please still share your offer with the rest of the community. The more help we get the more we can do to make Cheshire East greater place to live and work.

If you are a local business or contractor and think you can help a community organisation please contact the Connected Communities Team.

If you are a local community group in need of help

If you are a local community group and have a great idea as to what you can do to improve our community, but need some practical help with this, then submit a request for help.

Have a look through our noticeboard to see what help is on offer from businesses and if you would like to apply for the offer contact the Connected Communities Team.

Role of the Connected Communities team

We will ensure that offers and requests are published and updated regularly on the Connected Communities Noticeboard and act as brokers to connect community groups and businesses. No organisation will be contacted outside of the Connected Communities Team.
