Community groups are invited to showcase their business partnerships and celebrate how the partnership has provided value to their work.

About the Best Community Partnership with Business award

The Community partnership award recognises the work and support a partnership with a business has given to a community, group or site.

Great community groups harness all the time, talents and resources at their disposal. We live in an age when businesses are striving to be socially responsible and are seeking new ways of supporting the communities in which they operate. We want to recognise community groups who have seized this opportunity to add value to their work by engaging creatively with business partners.
