Corporate partnership opportunities with Thames Reach.

We believe a successful corporate/charity partnership delivers a powerful means for change. Combining the unique attributes of you, the corporate partner, with your enthusiasm, creativity and an outcomes-focused mind-set, with our experience, expertise and understanding of homelessness enables us to deliver a truly distinct service.

Based on a foundation of openness, trust and mutual understanding, we aim to build a partnership that engages your people, providing them with opportunities to be directly involved with those who have experienced homelessness, whilst ensuring your company’s resources are used to optimum effect supporting some of London’s most disenfranchised and vulnerable people.

We will provide you with opportunities to visit front-line services to help you gain a deeper understanding of homelessness and will happily come along to your offices to meet your staff. We also have a range of challenge events and fundraising activities to boost your engagement. Of course we are always happy to recognise your contribution through our own publicity channels.

Whether you are looking to explore a one off event, or are seeking a partnership for a ‘Charity of the Year’, Thames Reach will guarantee that your involvement will make a real difference to those we support.

Examples of current partnerships:

Work-related activity: Can you help our service users get in to work? Employment is vital in the journey away from homelessness as it helps build confidence, it develops social skills and provides an income and independence. Thames Reach is working with corporate partners to provide work experience through work placements, vocational training and site visits to places of work.

Monetary support: Making a donation or raising money for Thames Reach helps us deliver new and innovative services providing more relevant and sustainable ways of supporting London’s most vulnerable people. Through a corporate donation Thames Reach set up its ‘Hard to Reach’ fund, giving service users access to small grants to help them overcome short-term problems.

Specialisms: Can you provide Thames Reach with technical support/advice on a pro-bono basis? Recently Thames Reach worked with a global marketing company to research the giving preferences of individual donors to help it understand its supporters better and provide a more bespoke service increasing its income through voluntary donations.

Volunteering: Volunteering your time is a great way to support Thames Reach, it provides a valuable resource for us and gives the volunteer an opportunity to get directly involved. Corporate volunteers regularly volunteer for our outreach teams providing support to people sleeping rough on the streets of London.
