This Pack outlines the many benefits that are available to businesses and individuals that would like to get involved with and support what we are delivering to the City of Portsmouth.

It also goes on to explain where, as an individual, people can contribute to the many programmes and to become an integral part of the Shaping Portsmouth family.

“We love being part of Shaping Portsmouth and the community of people that we now engage with. Shaping Portsmouth is doing a great job.”

Brian Harpur, Managing Director

“Through our partnership with Shaping Portsmouth we have been able to widen our networking beyond West Sussex. We have appreciated the extensive support that we received from the Shaping Team especially when it comes to promoting our events and engaging with businesses around Portsmouth.
The collaboration has been invaluable so far especially with regards securing work-based learning activities.”

Federica Bocciarelli, Careers and Employability Manager

“We are more than happy to be a patron for Shaping. Why would we walk away from an organisation doing so much good for the community?”

Aaron Butson, Assistant Principal Business, Employment and Skills

“Being a proud Portsmouth-founded business, one of my key drivers was working with other homegrown and local business. To this end working with Shaping Portsmouth made perfect sense. From this relationship we now have the opportunity to work with an icon of the Southsea Seafront, Hover Travel.”

Anders Bohea, Managing Director

“Proud supporters of Shaping Portsmouth, we’re also shaping our city’s future by unlocking the potential of its people. Building on the successful merger of Highbury and Portsmouth Colleges, our offer continues to grow and develop, providing the best possible routes into higher education, employment or an apprenticeship.”

Katy Quinn, Principal and CEO

Hovertravel has been involved in Shaping Portsmouth for many years and is proud to be part of its continual development and success. Allowing a company that is passionate about the community, such as Hovertravel, to add its support in a collective and structured way, Shaping gives our company and its team members the opportunity to be involved and meet other organisations and individuals who make Portsmouth the Great City it is. Something we all proud of, and passionate about. 

Neil Chapman, Managing Director
