Inspire your staff

Charity of the Year partnerships are a positive and impactful way to inspire your staff through volunteering and fundraising.

A partnership with Crisis provides lots of opportunities to boost staff morale and get them feeling inspired by the contribution they're making. 

We can work with you to devise a programme or package which works for your company. Here are a few examples of activities we could bring into our partnership to inspire your staff.

 

Volunteering opportunities

We can offer a ranges of roles and tasks which your staff can get involved with. Whether you are looking for memorable team-building opportunities or ways they could use their skills, we can help. Your staff could:  

  • lead classes for our members as part of our year-round timetables of courses and events at our Skylight Centres
  • help our members prepare CVs and practice for interviews at our twice-yearly employment events
  • cook Christmas lunch or offer a friendly ear as part of Crisis at Christmas. Each year we open a number of day and rough sleeper centres in 5 locations over Christmas and recruit over 10,000 volunteers to do a wide variety of tasks.

 

Fundraising activity

Team-based fundraising can be a powerful way to motivate and build staff engagement.

There are opportunities all year round for your staff to compete in Crisis events such as our Square Mile Run or midwinter swims. Many staff teams also like to compete in their own events or organise office-based fundraising such as cake sales or fancy dress days.

 

Get in touch

We will work with you to get the most out of our partnership. Your Account Manager will be on hand to support you every step of the way.

We’d love to discuss how we can work together. Please email corporatepartnerships@crisis.org.uk or call us on 020 7036 2877.

 


How we've worked with ...

Dixons travel

In 2016 Dixons Travel chose Crisis as its first ever Charity of the Year. The company has 22 stores at airports across the UK. We helped Dixons Travel to implement a champions model where each store has a charity representative who helps organise and inspire their teams to raise money for us. We launched the partnership with a charity champions event which included talks and a fundraising workshop.

Employee fundraising has been at the heart of this partnership. For example Dixons Travel hosted a company-wide bike ride called the ‘Tour de Dixons’. Colleagues cycled the length and breadth of the country stopping off at every single airport with a Dixons Travel store! Employees also lead in-store fundraising activities and took-on challenge events including Tough Mudder and an Iron Man.

To date Dixons Travel have raised a staggering £50,000. We have reached almost the entire staff team, inspiring teamwork across the organisation and a sense of morale as they contribute a significant amount in helping to end homelessness.
