Welcome to Our Waterloo!
Our Waterloo aims to build relationships between local businesses, charities and community groups. Find out more about how you can get involved, whether as an organisation or individual.
Download here the first of our quarterly bulletins filled with ideas of how you can help out local good causes, whether by volunteering, one off opportunities, through a team away day or by donating useful stuff. Examples include:
Supporting employee volunteering
Employee volunteering not only benefits the community, but can also boost your staff retention, motivation and productivity. You donâ€™t have to have a dedicated member of staff to experience these benefits! Waterloo Quarter can help you set up an effective volunteering policy and put in you touch with local groups that would like to partner with you.
In kind brokerage
There are a wealth of services and skills on offer in Waterloo. Many of these could be invaluable to local charities or community groups if offered free of charge or at a discounted rate. Some examples include meeting room hire, design and print support or even food! Do you have a product or service that youâ€™d like to offer? Waterloo Quarter is able to match offers with suitable recipients.
Team Challenge Project
WQBID organises a once a year opportunity to work in mixed business and charity teams to create a lasting legacy for the wider community.

Waterloo Community Events
WQBID works with local community organisations on a number of events. A good example is The Waterloo Carnival. This year WQBID worked with local employee volunteers to help prepare for this colourful celebration and to boost local employer involvement. Find out more about the Waterloo Carnival here.
