Why work with us
There are so many ways your company can make a difference in your local community to children and families who desperately need our help and support. Whether it’s a Charity of the Year, an ongoing partnership or one-off event your sponsorship could help life-limited children and their Mums, Dads, brothers and sisters spend quality time as a family at one of our beautiful hospices.
Our team have experience of managing partnerships of all sizes and can tailor the approach to work closely with you and meet your needs. Take a look at our calendar of events and campaigns which gives plenty of opportunities for involvement.
We can provide a comprehensive corporate fundraising pack and materials (e.g. collection tins, posters, sponsor forms, stickers) to support your fundraising and with the support of our marketing department we will develop a PR plan that helps your company demonstrate the benefits you deliver to your community.
Our corporate partnerships bring increased customer loyalty, staff motivation and brand exposure, all whilst helping some of our regions most vulnerable children and their families: Your staff and clients/suppliers can visit your local children’s hospice to see the impact of your support.
Ways to work with us
There are options to suit every organisation no matter what their size or business.
Charity of the year
If you have a charity of the year or official charity we would love to work with you! We will help plan a calendar of fundraising and PR to bring your staff and customers together, towards a common goal. Whether you choose a charity by staff vote or a pitch process, our fundraisers are happy to submit a written proposal and present to your charity committee.

If your workplace doesn't have an official charity, why not get together with colleagues to plan a one-off fundraising event? Choosing to fundraise for charity is a great way of raising your company’s profile at events where you want to stand out from the rest! We've had supporters fundraise for us in wacky and quirky ways, could you think of better?

Sponsorship of events/campaigns
Children’s Hospice South West is one of the region’s most respected charities. By sponsoring one of our events or campaigns you will forge a positive relationship between your brand and ours. You will demonstrate your company’s values and commitment to your community with significant opportunity for brand exposure. Ask us for our Corporate Sponsorship Pack.
Cause related marketing
As one of the leading children’s hospices in the UK and one of the South West’s most respected charities, our brand can add strength to your marketing. As well as raising funds, a CRM initiative with us can reinforce your CSR policy, increase sales, raise mutual brand awareness and strengthen brand loyalty through demonstrating commitment to your community. We can also promote your website through our own to help drive traffic and sales.
Current CRM initiatives
Due to the nature of our work, we have limited opportunities for volunteers within our hospices - but there are lots of other options, like helping at events and collections or working in our fundraising office.
Gifts in kind
Would your company consider donating a product or service to save us money on the costs of running our hospices? Or how about end of line products for us to sell in our charity shops? Or perhaps raffle or auction prizes or items for goody bags at fundraising events?
