Our corporate partnerships add immense value to our services. There are lots of ways your company can get involved, and we will develop a bespoke relationship which will meet your CSR needs, whilst making a difference to homeless people.

We are unique in being able to offer financial supporters with volunteering placements in our busy centre, so your team can connect with the issue of homelessness, and see first-hand the difference you’re making to people’s lives.

Ways you can help:

Charity of the Year

Nominate The Connection as your Charity of the Year and we will explore lots of ways to partner with you, which will bring you closer to the cause and financially make an impact.

Get your team involved

From fundraising in your office, to volunteering in the centre, to taking part in one of our popular challenge events, there’s lots of ways your employees can work as a team to help support The Connection. We can also arrange for Client Days Out to Kew Gardens or The National Gallery (some examples can be found here).

Work Trials & Workshops for clients

As part of our Employability and Training service we run workshops where our clients would benefit from your employees’ knowledge and skills. These workshops can be themed; from helping people to build CVs and develop presentation skills, through to financial planning, they play an important role in helping people find work. Similarly, if you are able to offer work placements to our clients, you will be giving them a huge first step onto the ladder – in the past our clients have enjoyed successful placements with John Lewis and Coutts, to name but two.

Gifts in Kind

Our centre supports over 4,000 people a year and due to wear and tear items in our day centre need replacing. Similarly, our clients need a range of things to help them on their journey away from the streets. You can help us free up our income by donating a gift in kind.
