Corporate partnerships 

Our experienced team can help tailor a partnership to your needs

Shaping partnerships making a real difference to care experienced young people.

Whether it’s employee fundraising and engagement, commercial opportunities or one-off events, we’ll work closely alongside your teams to develop a mutually-beneficial partnership. This will help our team provide holistic services helping young people unleash their potential.

Why Become?

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 homes 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  Coaching Programme to Link Up, our higher/further education website Propel to our working with professionals – it’s all about helping care-experienced children and young people unleash their potential and take control of their lives. We are so grateful to our corporate partners

Why become our corporate partner?

We design our corporate partnerships with you, ensuring that we build lasting relationships that deliver for everyone. Whether your company is large or small, together we will create a strategic partnership to transform lives.

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 – making the most of your teams’ skills to help us deliver our work
  • Enhanced brand reputation – your fundraising successes will be shouted from the rooftops

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

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.

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

‘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.

If you run or work for a small business, we understand that you’re pulled in all manner of directions, so it means so much when we hear you want to support us through your venture and donate just by doing what you already do. We’re excited to share with you that we’ve teamed up with small business fundraising platform Work for Good, who make it super easy for your small business to donate to us through the sales of your products and services, and help us keep track of your wonderful support. Donating to us through the platform also gives you the opportunity to set up a Work for Good page to publicise your giving story to your customers, clients and employees, and shout about your support of Become.

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