Ways to partner Charity of the yearWhether it’s through Charity of the Year or through longer-term strategic partnerships, we have a range of initiatives in communities across the UK which you can help us support. We have a long history of successful partnerships with companies of all sizes. Key to this approach is engaging and informing your staff and customers as to how they can get involved and the value the partnership brings.SponsorshipKIDS runs over 100 services in England. Sponsoring a KIDS project or event can really help us increase the support we provide, show your support for local communities, provide reach through KIDS channels; and promote a positive image to staff, clients, customers and suppliers alike. Contact us to find out more about our sponsorship packages.Employee FundraisingFundraising events with colleagues increase team spirit. KIDS can help with activities from dress down days to skydiving to professional development fundraising, providing our ideas and listening to yours.Sales promotion (CRM)By making a donation to KIDS every time a customer purchases your product, you can enhance your sales, provide a unique selling point and allow access to KIDS’ audience. According to the recent Cone Communications/Echo Global CSR Study, 91% of global consumers are likely to switch brands to one associated with a good cause, given comparable price and quality. Our experienced team can help you devise a mutually beneficial campaign which is relevant to your goals. See an example of this on our partner Selfish Mother's website. Corporate volunteeringAre you and your team looking for an exciting team-building challenge that gets everyone involved, tests your abilities and makes an incredible difference to a hugely worthwhile cause? Team Challenge Days:We run Team Challenge Days at our four disability-inclusive adventure playgrounds across London, located in Islington, Hackney, Chelsea and Wandsworth, and tasks range from painting to building structures, gardening to repairing bikes and toys and everything in between. Our programme can accommodate teams of up to 20 volunteers at a time and can be flexible to suit your needs as an organisation. Outing Days: Why not accompany a group of our young people on an exciting outing, such as a trip to a zoo, museum or theme park? We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities of this nature both within and outside of London.KIDS relies on corporate volunteer teams to keep our unique play spaces clean and safe for our disabled children and young people to enjoy. Your support can make an incredible difference to our work and we would be delighted to host your team on one of our many available dates throughout the year. "It's so refreshing to get the opportunity to do something entirely different than the day to day hotel business AND have a chance to participate in a great cause." - Christoph, Corporate Volunteer (The Langham Hotel London) “I thoroughly enjoyed the day and really found it extremely rewarding. KIDS is a wonderful charity and a cause that really struck a chord with me and made me take a step back to think and put our working lives in perspective” - Adam, Corporate Volunteer For more information on Team Challenge Days or KIDS Outing Days, please give us a call on 0207 288 7172 or email our Corporate Fundraiser Ella MayneGift in KindCorporate support does not have to be financial. You can give invaluable assistance by donating your time, products and services, therefore allowing KIDS to plough more funds into supporting disabled children and their families.Payroll givingKnowing that we can rely on your support through Payroll Giving means we can make longer term plans for new and exciting projects for the children we work with, as well as developing the existing vital services already in place. Payroll Giving is a way for your employees to make regular and one-off payments to charity directly from their pay. Payments that your employees make through a Payroll Giving Scheme are deducted from their pay before tax is deducted. This means that employees are given tax relief on their donation immediately - and at their highest rate of tax. For example, if you want to give a regular gift of £10, only £8 will be deducted from your salary each month. It's very easy to set up - Simply complete the online form which will come through to us. We will then notify your payroll department that you would like to set up a regular donation to us in this way.
