BSTLC CIC is a Community Interest Company, a social enterprise limited by guarantee.

BSTLC focuses on encouraging businesses of all sizes, from a sole proprietor to large PLCs, to support their local community.

We use the Power of Leverage to improve our local community.

The company is based in Southend but is looking to develop a model that could be replicated in local areas across the country. There are three main aspects to our operations:

1. Double Whammy Networking events (DW)

Ad hoc DW events in the Southend area provide excellent business networking opportunities that also support the local community. Events are always sponsored; delegates are charged the normal rate for the type of event, typically £10; at least 75% of the ticket price goes to our charity pot. We don’t hold any raffles or auctions at the events apart from an optional card draw.

2. Southend Business and Community Charter Awards

An award, via a robust application process, (it isn’t a competition) to acknowledge and celebrate businesses that are supporting the Southend community. A Charter Committee with members from local business and community organisation, including Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, makes the final award decision.

3. Keeping our Southend Business database informed of ways in which they could support the local community.
