BUSINESSES and charity groups are to come together in a bid to improve the borough through a variety of community initiatives.

The Croydon 4 Croydon Pledge is being launched by corporate charity Croydon Commitment at the Fairfield Halls, in Park Lane, on Tuesday.

At the heart of the pledge, according to Croydon Commitment chief executive Ian Robinson, is inspiring businesses and other organisations to "put Croydon first".

Mr Robinson said: "In the light of the events which have happened in Croydon in the past few years, and the wider economic challenges that are facing us all, Croydon Commitment felt it was time to bring key stakeholders together in order to achieve more focused and targeted community engagement."

The four-point pledge will commit those who sign up to expand their corporate responsibility role; look to buy services and recruit locally where possible; increase youth training and development and promote Croydon among contacts as a great place to work.

Mr Robinson said: "This is an opportunity for like-minded organisations to stand together and to declare that they are 'in Croydon for Croydon' and to support this pledge."

Tuesday's event will also see Croydon Commitment announce the names of community initiatives which will receive a share of the charity's £24,000 Grassroots Funding pot.

Croydon Commitment was launched in 2004 to promote the work of local charities and voluntary groups and is supported by businesses in Croydon.
