Find out how your company can work with us in further detail below.

Team Building and PR

Looking for ways to engage teams? Seeking some good news stories to put out to the press? We’d love to work with you.


Payroll Giving

Make regular donations through payroll giving. It’s very tax-efficient for the individual as the donation is taken pre-tax. If you don’t already have a payroll giving scheme set up at your place of work, we can help you with the set-up.

Corporate Volunteering

We offer a range of volunteering opportunities at our site in Cheadle Hulme, Stockport for corporate teams.



We have a number of very attractive sponsorship packages. Sponsor our fundraising or family events, a specialist conference, a piece of equipment, or activity with a charity corporate partnership.

Gift In Kind Donations

We benefit from the generosity of many companies who choose to donate products that will benefit our children and young people, and to our events, either for goody bags or as raffle/auction prizes.  If you are able to support us in this way, please get in touch.
