Corporate partnerships with Crisis

Becoming a partner of Crisis will support you and your colleagues to play a part in ending homelessness for good. The Partnerships team will help you to fundraise creatively and engage in inspiring volunteering opportunities, to show you the impact of your support.

Corporate supporters of Crisis give more than just money. Their time, energy and expertise supports homeless people at our Skylight centres to find their confidence and re-enter employment; our Best Practice team to develop sector-leading policy recommendations; and our Christmas guests to take their first steps out of homelessness.

Please get in touch with us today if you are interested in working with Crisis to end homelessness. If you are looking to make a one-off corporate gift, please donate here. If you would like to attend a 'Welcome to Crisis' breakfast, please register to attend. If you are a business owner or senior colleague at your organisation and would like to make a large personal donation, please visit our philanthropy page.

Strategic partnerships

Crisis' strategic partnerships go beyond simply providing staff with exciting ways to volunteer and fundraise. We work to build partnerships which make a lasting difference to our mission to end homelessness.

Our strategic partnerships can offer your company:

  • The chance to fund a unique project, service or role.
  • Opportunities to influence housing policy at a national level.
  • Innovation workshops and the chance to use your expertise to develop Crisis' resources and staff.

We deliver partnerships with the power to transform the lives of the some of the most vulnerable members of society, whilst also meeting your corporate social responsibility objectives and engaging your staff.

Our strategic partnerships deliver big impact, both for corporate supporters and our members.

Inspire your staff

Your account manager will work with you and your colleagues to devise a unique programme of engagement opportunities designed around your needs and wants. We offer a range of fun, memorable team-building opportunities, and occasions for your staff to volunteer their time and skills to help homeless people. Your staff could:

  • Take part in the Ultimate Crisis Challenge, an app-based treasure hunt.
  • Support members of our support centres by volunteering on our employability programmes.
  • Offer support to guests at Crisis this Christmas centres across Britain.
  • Challenge yourself to fundraise for annual events such as the Icebreaker and Square Mile Run series.

Grow your brand

Publicly associating your brand with Crisis can also be a powerful way of increasing your sales, improving customer loyalty and reaching out to and engaging with new audiences.

The Partnerships team can offer tailored communications to engage your audiences in ending homelessness.

Your account manager can work with you to develop a cause-related marketing campaign, where a portion of sales of a product are donated to Crisis.

Companies who support our Crisis Christmas Card campaign play an important part of our work to support people out of homelessness.

To thank you, we’ll promote your company’s brand to the UK’s business elite in a double page spread in the Financial Times, running twice each December. We will also provide you with co-branded assets including a Christmas ecard and inspiring video, to share your season’s greetings with stakeholders and staff, while showing your company’s support to end homelessness.

Volunteer your time

The team design bespoke engagement calendars for all of our corporate partners who are able to commit to a minimum fundraising target of £20,000.

These calendars include a range of seasonal and ad hoc volunteering opportunities for teams and individuals.

Unfortunately, due to the popularity of our volunteering programme, we are not able to offer opportunities to companies who are looking to source one-off team events.

To find out more about the kinds of volunteering opportunities available at Crisis, and how you can play a role in ending homelessness, please contact the Partnerships team today.
