We love working with local businesses to fundraise for our charity, or finding volunteering opportunities.

We want all partnerships we have to be exactly that; a partnership. We want to fundraise and raise awareness of our charity, but we also want you, your employees and your business to benefit too. As well a creating fun opportunities for your employees to work together as a team to fundraise, we can also provide you with promotion on our social media accounts and we send out regular Press Releases to local press. We also have event sponsorship opportunities etc that we would be happy to discuss.

Volunteering

For companies looking to make themselves stand out from other employers, encouraging your staff to volunteer is a fantastic way to do this. Volunteering encourages creative thinking and team working. It enables your employees to develop new skills, bringing them together with a renewed sense of purpose, and it demonstrates to the wider community that your organisation cares about both its staff and the local area in which it operates. If your company is interested in these opportunities please email hannah@friendsandfamilies.org.uk

  • Increased awareness of your business by linking with a local charity.
  • Engagement and involvement of staff, boosting team morale and enthusiasm.
  • Fun and engaging PR and social media opportunities. Don’t forget to use #SupportCHSW
  • Networking potential with other participating businesses.
  • Help to fulfil your Corporate Social Responsibility objectives.
  • Increased engagement with clients, customers or suppliers.

What our friends and families say...

“The emotional support I received from my befriender was fantastic and the opportunity to off load and reveal my concerns and fears was like having a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.”

Gareth Allen (parent)

Not only does the charity provide exciting experiences for the children but can also help with much needed support for the parents.  Being a parent of a disabled child can at times be very lonely and isolating.  To meet with other parents on these activity days is a breath of fresh air and helps you to realise that there are many other people like you facing the similar day to day challenges of having a disabled child.  From our personal experiences we can share stories, offer help and advice and even make new friends.

January 2018

“Thank you to all staff for looking after our kids at Magdalen Farm. Oliver has really enjoyed himself and can’t wait till the next time.”

August 2017

“What a fantastic friendly welcoming place. We visited for the first time this morning for help to fill in a DLA form for our eldest daughter. We were given great help and advice with something we found very overwhelming and difficult.”

February 2017

“Thank you, yet again, to Friends & Families of Special Children for providing opportunities for my son that I never thought he would be able to do.  During the summer he was able to have surfing lessons and enjoy other water sport activities organised by the charity.   When we arrive at the sessions they are always very well planned and as parents we have no explaining to do and even better no apologising for our child’s behaviour!  The staff have an amazing understanding and empathy on the needs of various disabilities of the children and this helps to keep everyone relaxed and happy including the parents/carers!”

October 2015

“It was the best day ever being able to go swimming as a family with her little sister who can only use a hydrotherapy pool. We’re so grateful we can have unforgettable days out thanks to the events you put on. We can thank you enough.”
