The Link

New service to support Southampton’s community groups looking for business support.
A ground-breaking new service in Southampton has been launched, that will make it easier for community groups to secure support from local businesses. The Link is a joint initiative between Business in the Community (BITC), Southampton City Council and Southampton Voluntary Services (SVS).

Community partners looking for help with projects such as redecorating premises, gardening and event organisation will be able to register their needs with The Link. The service will then put them in touch with a local business that is prepared to volunteer employees’ time and skills.
