Liverpool Chamber has launched a new project aimed at helping charities and community organisations to develop new relationships with its members.

The scheme will create pathways for third sector organisations to engage with businesses across a range of sectors, showcasing their missions and seeking support for awareness and fundraising campaigns.

It will also involve a new multi-platform campaign encouraging chamber members to partner with a charity and educating them on ways to enhance their social impact and return on investment.

Charities will receive access to all events covered by a standard Liverpool Chamber membership, including monthly strategy events and Well Connected, which will each feature a dedicated charity speaking slot.

Two Charity Sector Showcase events will be held each year, bringing together charity representatives and corporate partners interested in the third sector, as well as presentations by local and national funders and potential corporate partners on their aims and objectives in recruiting charity partners.

Organisations will also be able to enrol on the chamber’s Business Growth programme, gaining a diagnostic assessment of their needs, with access to six seminars covering a range of growth advice, expert mentoring and ongoing support.

The programme contains a Responsible Business module, giving a quarterly platforming opportunity to one charity partner. A variety of marketing opportunities will also be made available to charities, including features in the chamber’s Well Connected magazine, member newsletters, social media and selected media channels.

The scheme is launched as the Chamber announces its own new charity partners – Clatterbridge Cancer Charity and Everton in the Community – with the aim of raising significant funds for a joint project. 

Lesley Beattie, director of development at Everton in the Community, said: “We pride ourselves on building long term strategic partnerships with companies, individuals and foundations alike.

“We are very grateful to the chamber for its support which will enable us to continue our life changing and life-saving work whilst helping to meet their own long-term objectives.”
