OrganisersWest Midlands National Business Response Network, as set up by Business in the Community (BITC), part of the Prince’s Responsible Business Network.
As the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on towns and cities across the UK intensifies, the need to link business support to community needs at the right place, right time and at the right scale has never been more urgent.
In the West Midlands, they are working with our Regional Board of business leaders who have risen to the challenge of identifying solutions to support community groups, schools, local authorities and others. They are meeting critical needs such as food provision, technology to enable people to stay connected, social care for vulnerable groups and professional support.
This webinar will shine a light on success stories, looking at how we can continue to support communities in the West Midlands, helping them survive the immediate crisis and enabling them to recover and thrive in the future.
Webinar topics of discussion
- Provide an overview of BITC’s National Business Response Network
- Share great examples of how businesses in the West Midlands have been delivering support directly to communities
- Hear from community partners on the challenges brought on by the crisis and the importance of the support they are receiving
