the Community Foundation for the people of Kirklees.

Our Business and Community Connector service.

The area in which we live and work influences what we do and determines many of our relationships – a shared sense of place can unite us. 

Rather than focusing on isolated interventions, One Community Foundation’s ‘place-based approach’ makes the most of these connections. By considering the whole Kirklees community - how it works and what it needs - and collaborating with different sectors, our approach aims to make a lasting difference to people’s lives.

We partner with voluntary and community groups, not-for-profit organisations, schools and charities - this year alone we have awarded £1.2m of funding.

Feedback from the charity sector tells us that groups need more than just grants, especially as we recover from the Covid-19 crisis. In response, we have launched our FREE Business and Community Connector service.

Our aim is to connect skilled professionals who are keen to share their experience and knowledge with good causes and projects across Kirklees

Whether you're new to recruiting skilled volunteers or want to make sure you're making the most of your latest role, we are here to help
