About BBC Outreach & Corporate Responsibility

BBC Outreach & Corporate Responsibility brings the BBC closer to its audiences - particularly those audiences we have identified as being harder to reach - through face-to-face activity, community support and staff volunteering. We also hold the relationship with the voluntary sector for the BBC.

We lead on the BBC’s corporate responsibility reporting, while telling the story of the outreach work carried out across the organisation.  We produce publications throughout the year, including the annual BBC Corporate Responsibility Performance Review, regular CR Updates focusing on a particular area of our work in the field and a newsletter - you can read our recent reports or sign up to our newsletter on this site.

We're currently based at Salford’s MediaCityUK, with members of staff in Bristol, Newcastle and London.

We manage a national volunteering scheme that allows our staff to work with charities and community organisations around the UK - you can read about some of this activity on the Volunteering page of this site.

We help regional broadcast teams engage with harder to reach audiences. We also try to ensure that the BBC has a positive impact in communities where we are a large employer - primarily Westminster, Hammersmith & Fulham, Salford and Greater Manchester. Finally, we support the BBC's City Partnership in Bristol with an active outreach programme.

    BBC Outreach & Corporate Responsibility helps the BBC to be more than a broadcaster by engaging our audiences in events and activities.
