Supporting local communities

Helping businesses to support local communities

We can support your City firm in responsible business practice. The links on the left will provide you with more information on our projects and the practical ways in which we can help you.

We support businesses in and around the City with their corporate responsibility programmes, support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to access City firms’ supply chains, and work with the public, private and voluntary sectors to bring lasting social and economic regeneration to the City fringes.

Supporting local communities directly

In parallel with supporting the efforts of City businesses to help local communities, the City of London also runs numerous programmes on our own account including payroll giving and employee volunteering. For more information on these projects, please visit our pages on supporting London's communities pages.
