Business in the Community (BITC) exists to build healthy communities with successful businesses at their heart. Using our expertise and network of business leaders, BITC helps employers to channel their leadership, innovation and scale. This enables them to address social, economic and environmental challenges in specific locations around the UK by working alongside public sector and voluntary organisations within their communities.

Our towns and cities have always been at the heart of economic development and the creation of prosperity whether as marketplaces or as centres of enterprise, knowledge, culture, learning and innovation. However, the forces changing the way we live work and learn today, exacerbated by the advances in digital technology, are leaving too many communities behind. There is an gap between those who are benefitting from the changes and those who are not. This is creating a fracture in society and a breakdown in trust between business and society which demands a strong business-led response.

Find out how Business in the Community is building thriving communities where people want to live and work.
