We are a thriving business-led cross-sector collaboration, to support the people and communities in our great City.

We launched in 2019 and our founding members are Arm, Arup, Henry Boot, Irwin Mitchell, Sheffield Hallam University, University of Sheffield, Business in the Community, Voluntary Action Sheffield and South Yorkshires Community Foundation. We have already delivered 449 projects – valued in excess of £860k in which 90+ voluntary sector organisations have benefitted. In 2021 we proudly partnered with the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, due to our shared belief we are better when we come together.

Join us to make a lasting difference in our great city!

Our Mission is to bring together like minded businesses to collaborate, connect, share and harness resources across sectors (private, public and charity) to address some of the key challenges facing our city and communities.

Our team

Sheffield Business Together is led by Carolynn McConnell (Business in the Community) and Project Co-ordinator Katie Tilyard (Sheffield Chamber of Commerce).

Carolynn and Katie are passionate about Sheffield and supporting our communities and charities. We know businesses in the city have a heart and want to make a difference. Our job is to make it easy for you to do so. We would love to speak with you to understand your business and discuss the range of ways you can get involved.

A note from our chair

Sheffield has a proud history of philanthropy and collaboration for good between the private, public and voluntary sectors. Sheffield Business Together (SBT) aims to increase employer engagement in a co-ordinated way, brokering relationships and increasing the impact.

I am so proud to be the chair of SBT and see the impact that our collaboration and projects have had in the community, working in the fields of Education, Environment and Social Action. We look forward to expanding our programme of work with the support of the additional partners that have joined us in 2022. Louisa Harrison-Walker
