Corporate volunteering:

Supporting your local youth charity can help your business meet its Corporate Social Responsibility targets, improve your image, and boost your local reputation. It can also provide your employees with a highly rewarding experience and an insight into the local community.

We offer businesses a wide range of opportunities to become involved in supporting our charitable work with young people. Whether it be one-off volunteering, in kind donations, or sponsorship, every contribution we receive is valued.

  • Work experience and mentoring:Provide a work experience and mentoring placement for a young person and give them much-needed insight into the world of work.
  • In kind support and employee volunteering: Support our projects through employee volunteering or providing goods or services on a pro bono basis. Become a volunteer football coach, bring your video editing skills to our media project, or lend a hand at one of our community events.
  • Fundraising:: Get involved in our fundraising or start a fundraising event of your own! We are always looking for a helping hand with our fundraising and we would love to hear your fundraising ideas.
  • Sponsorship:Sponsoring specific aspects of our work, such as our community events or employability project, is a great way to enhance your business’s local reputation. Sponsors can display their logo on publicity materials and banners, take part in photo opportunities, and present certificates and prizes to our young volunteers.
