Introducing the Business Connector for Bradford North


Adele Dolby is bringing community groups & businesses together.

Business in the Community's "business connector" programme is helping communities in Bradford North.

"Business in the Community is one of the Prince's charities, a group of not-for-profit organisations of which The Prince of Wales is the President. The Business Connector programme was launched in 2012 following a £4.8million commitment from the Big Lottery Fund. Today for £1 of funding, more than £9 in support has been leveraged into communities. This programme has shown real positive value for the communities in which Business Connectors are active."

"A Business Connector is a talented individual seconded from business or the Civil Service and placed in a local community where there is need. Their role is to listen and understand the local needs and help to create partnerships between local organisations and businesses in order to tackle social issues."

Help available

In Bradford, Adele Dolby has been seconded from HM Revenue & Customs and is the Business Connector for Bradford North. She would like to talk to voluntary and community groups in Manningham, Heaton, Toller, Eccleshill, Undercliffe and Bolton. Adele may be able to help make links with businesses that lead to skills-based volunteers providing professional skills to a charity or recruiting management committee members.
