The best city in the UK to invest,
learn, live, work and visit.
Shaping Portsmouth is a not-for-profit company whose vision is to make Portsmouth the UK’s No 1 City in which to invest, live, learn, work and visit.
We run programmes covering three areas managed by our part-time staff and nearly 200 volunteers:
Business: We aim to offer the best set of support services to help businesses to start and then grow.
Education: We have a five-year skills’ strategy, working in partnership with the City Council, businesses, recruitment companies, colleges, the University, training providers and the DWP, to ensure we have a well-trained and motivated labour force that is highly utilised for jobs by our City’s businesses.
Community: We run a range of programmes in partnership with all the major City organisations which anyone can join, share, enjoy benefits from, and feel both connected and valued.
Working in the City since 2010, we are the only organisation with the leadership and all-round experience required to be responsible for delivering the programmes required by our communities.
We can evidence our results, and the benefits to our communities from the improvements we have made.
With 803 businesses, 650 local Ambassadors and 175 active volunteers working with and for us, we are confident that the City needs us to continue working to realise our vision.
We have a three-year plan that lays out our priorities and activities to ensure we continue to deliver the growth the City needs.
