Corporate Partners

Every Chances for Children grant you support, is an individual story of a family, child or young person whose life has been changed.

Our corporate partners do not just raise money, they are a community of support for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

Corporate partners help us deliver items and activities in new and innovative ways, raise awareness of key issues children are facing, engage more people in our cause and ultimately to reach more children, families, and young people than we ever could without their support.

Each of our partnerships is unique. Our team is interested in working with you to develop ideas that make the most of the time, expertise, resources, and donations of your company.

If you’d like to find out more please do get in touch.

Here are some examples of our most successful partnerships…

Graphite Capital think about investment and growth from a unique perspective. When they came to us, they were looking to make a major and sustained impact with their funds by helping lift disadvantaged young people out of the cycle of poverty and supporting them in training and education. Investing over £1 million over a 10-year period, they focused their efforts on young people estranged from their family/carers to create the Graphite Capital Bursary Fund. Their long-term vision has allowed us to increase our work with this vulnerable population and established this area as a major theme within our grant giving.

 


 

Dreams has been our major supplier of children’s beds for over 10 years. In 2018, Dreams worked with us and The Sun to launch the ‘Bed for Kids’ campaign and provided 3,000 beds for some of the most vulnerable children in the UK through Buttle UK. This campaign brought attention to the estimated 400,000 children across the UK who do not have a bed to sleep in. The campaign had four weeks of initial coverage across both the print and online versions of the paper. The campaign lead to the issue of bed poverty being covered on the BBC for the first time.

 


 

We were thrilled to be ArgoGlobal’s charity of the year for 2019 and 2020. It was incredible to work with their charity team, who were focused on leveraging the partnership to deliver the biggest impact possible for the children we support and involving as many staff members as possible in their efforts. From sponsoring our Rugby Dinner and the 30th anniversary of  The Italian Job Car Rally, to hosting an incredible number of staff fundraising initiatives, they were integral to every major fundraising event during this period. They also help us to develop our first ever Christmas gift drive, an initiative that will live on beyond this partnership.

 


 

The Billington Group has several different sites across the UK. They wanted to have a company-wide charity partner, but it was equally important to the individual sites, that their fundraising had a local impact. With our custom grant system, we offered a great solution, a charity with national reach that is able to target each sites fundraising into helping children and families in those local areas. Part of their fundraising efforts included a wonderful gala dinner and auction in Liverpool Cathedral.
