Rotherham Pioneers is a programme that will unite businesses, organisations and individuals across the area in a powerful network to change perceptions of Rotherham and raise its profile

Rotherham Pioneers will be proactive advocates for the town and area both nationally and internationally, with the power to influence how it is marketed, portrayed in the media and at events; to get it known and recognised by the people that matter.

Rotherham Pioneers will bring together the knowledge, networks, passion and determination of businesses, organisations and individuals as a powerful force, helping the place compete; attracting investment, business and visitors to create a more successful economy to the benefit of everyone in the borough.

If that sounds like you or your organisation, then Rotherham Pioneers is for you.
