Become A Corporate Partner!

At Become, we’re passionate about improving the care system and helping care-experienced children and young people unleash their potential. Our incredible corporate partners come in all shapes and sizes, but all of them are helping us to deliver on our ambitious targets.

Each year, over 90,000 children and young people spend time in care in the UK.

That’s 90,000 children and young people taken away from their home because it is not safe for them to be there. Who have experienced abuse, neglect, or family breakdown. Who have to move – often multiple times, to another new family, another new bedroom, maybe another new school.

Lots of young people flourish in care, with loving, supportive carers and professionals who go the extra mile. But too many don’t. Each year, thousands of young people leave care. At just 16, 17 or 18, they often find themselves living alone, frequently with little support.

 

That’s where Become comes in.

Your support will make a real difference to the life chances of some of the most vulnerable young people in our community. Everything we do – from our Become Coaching Programme to our magazines, our higher education website Propel to our Passport to Parliament engagement project – it’s all about helping care-experienced children and young people unleash their potential and take control of their lives.

 

Why become our corporate partner?

We are a small, dedicated team and we want to get to know you! We design our corporate partnerships with you, ensuring that we build lasting relationships that deliver for everyone. Whether your company is large or small, your staff will feel engaged in our partnership and proud to be supporting our work. 

Some great reasons to become our corporate partner:

  • bespoke partnerships - designed for you and your company
  • loads of support for fundraising activities and events – for individuals, teams or company-wide
  • opportunities for staff engagement – with potential for pro-bono work and skilled volunteering
  • enhanced brand reputation – your fundraising successes will be shouted from the rooftops

There are loads of ways we can work together, including:

 

Fundraising events

We will support your staff all the way – however they fundraise! Whether it’s pitting team against team in a company relay race, jumping out of a plane, cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats or just taking it easy and baking some cakes for the tea break, we’re here with tons of ideas on how to make fundraising fun.

 

Matched fundraising

One easy way to get behind your employees’ fundraising? Match your employees’ efforts pound for pound. Everyone’s a winner!

 

Payroll giving

‘Payroll giving’, ‘give as you earn’, ‘workplace giving’ – whatever you call it, it’s an easy way to donate to charity. It’s flexible and is deducted from salaries before tax – making it a tax-efficient way to maximise your support for our direct work with young people.

 

Project sponsorship

Our projects range massively in scope and cost. Talk to us if you would like to focus your resources on a particular area of our work.

 

Skilled volunteering

Enabling your staff to share their time and expertise could have a big impact for a charity of our size. Could you offer training or consultancy for Become, or a skills workshop for care-experienced young people? There are opportunities available to match up and make the most of your expertise.

 

Gifts in kind

Donating some of your brilliant products or exclusive experiences for us to auction will help us set those bids aflutter. Or how about room hire – have you got some amazing spaces you could let us use for free?
