Corporate Partnerships

Ultimately there are so many reasons businesses engage with charities and their local community: whether it be down to simply wanting to do something good; enhancing employee relations and retention; team building; better PR to positively influence consumers or even helping to enhance a brand’s corporate identity – doing well and doing good should ideally go hand in hand.

At the end of the day, we’re a small local charity and we enjoy partnering with similarly small local businesses who want to get involved in their community as socially concerned businesses. Whether it’s sponsoring one of our events, taking us on as your designated Charity of The Year (always welcome, as you might imagine) or funding something tangible like sight equipment, we’re more than happy to entertain your ideas.

And of course, the relationship should always flow both ways…

If you have staff or customers with sight loss, we can help train your staff in what to be aware of and how to help guide your visually impaired customers. We can also convert your company’s materials into audio or Braille. If you are considering taking on a visually impaired staff member or volunteer, then we can help with that too.

Our priority is to work together to build a quality long-lasting relationship that works for you and your customers, rather than simply asking for hand-outs. We are eager to work with you to raise money to help us to continue to support local blind and partially sighted people while providing you with tangible benefits that keep you coming back to us.
