It’s hard delivering quality corporate community investment programmes these days – money’s tight and priorities are changing. However, in times of budget cuts it’s even more crucial to strengthen your return on investment and ensure you’re directing your resources where they’re needed most.

ELBA understand the needs of east London and how companies can best channel their resources and influence to make an impact, playing their part in the regeneration solutions for the area. In a nutshell, ELBA is a membership organisation that exists to bring about positive change in east London, connecting the public, private and voluntary sectors and empowering them to create exciting possibilities. ELBA aims to help its corporate partners innovate, collaborate and think differently about how they give back. The results are often diverse, innovative with a hugely positive impact on the community.
