Solent University

A session at KTP Showcase

  • Mr Mike Toy

Speaker: Michael Toy

Project Summary: The knowledge transfer partnership with Business in the Community focused on identifying some of the key issues faced by Hampshire’s most deprived communities. Using the latest Indices of Multiple Deprivation Data (2010) the project has identified 38 local wards which are affected by various issues in relation to the individual indices. In depth research was concentrated into Thornhill and through meeting with key community organisations, schools and businesses a greater understanding of the local need was obtained. It is planned that, following completion of the Knowledge Transfer Partnership, programmes engaging these local organisations will be developed to address some of the issues identified.

Company Partner: Business in the Community stands for responsible business. With a membership of over 850 companies, engagement in 10,700 organisations internationally and an employee reach of 14.7 million, Business in the Community is raising the benchmark for responsible business practice. We offer our members practical support to help them transform their businesses and integrate responsible practices into their operations. And we ask our members to work in partnership with us to help transform communities and tackle serious social issues where business can make a real difference. Business in the Community is one of the Prince’s Charities, a group of not-for-profit organisations of which The Prince of Wales is President.
