What We Do / Better Together

Better Together

The Better Together CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Project was set up to help Plymouth businesses and the community to connect together in a simpler way.

Devon Chamber of Commerce, Plymouth Guild and the Plymouth Drake Foundation have now formed a partnership under the Better Together brand, working closely with Plymouth City Council, to deliver a simple “one stop shop” approach to make it easier for businesses to contribute to their local community and in turn help them realise the business benefits that this delivers.

Through collaboration and joined up working the Better Together partnership will bring together volunteering and giving opportunities from across the City for businesses to access. This could take the form of volunteering and / or donating time, expertise, skills and other resources, including money.

What does this mean to you?

  • Direct access to opportunities in the City for your business to deliver CSR objectives and contribute to your local community
  • Engaging your employees, developing their skills, boosting morale and increasing retention and loyalty
  • Raised awareness and understanding of local community issues and challenges
  • Positive brand image with raised visibility in the community
  • Raised awareness and understanding of the help and support available, which could benefit you, your employees and their families
  • The opportunity for your business to demonstrate and get recognition for the wider contribution you make to your City
