Get your company involved

A partnership with School-Home Support helps your company achieve its business goals while helping the most at-risk, vulnerable children make the most of educational opportunities and improve their life chances.

“SHS is a fantastic charity doing great and much needed work, and I hope that we at BlackRock can continue to partner with them in the future.”
Adam Cohen, Managing Director, Blackrock

Watch our video on a recent challenge we did in partnership with Fidelity International – London, making over the homes of two vulnerable families in Hackney:

 “The Liberum Foundation continues to support SHS by both funding and actively getting involved, because the effects of SHS’s professional and compassionate work are clear and measurable in transforming the lives of troubled young people and their families.”

Carolyn Doherty, Trustee, The Liberum Foundation

There are a number of different ways that your company can get involved with SHS:

Commercial Partnerships

We will work together to support vulnerable families in your community, identifying a project for you to invest in and giving opportunities to promote the difference being made to your staff and stakeholders.

Employee Fundraising

From Santa runs to sponsored silences, abseiling to auctions, cake sales to car washes, dress-down days to dance-a-thons – employee fundraising is a fun, practical way to make a meaningful difference. We can help you develop your fundraising activity, giving you resources, support and the motivation to raise as much money as possible.

“This opportunity has impacted all those involved on so many levels; inspiring them as individuals, building them as a team, opening our eyes to the need in the communities in which we operate and enabling us to make a difference to the lives of two deserving families. Thank you for the opportunity and we look forward to our continued partnership with School Home Support.”

Vicki Haxton, Senior Manager Corporate Citizenship

Charity of the Year

If your company has a Charity of the Year, please consider nominating SHS and we will support you with the application.

Payroll Giving

This is a very simple and effective means of giving, which enables anyone who pays UK income tax to give tax-free donations – meaning that for every £1 you give, you will only pay 80p, and if you’re a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p. Many companies match fund payroll giving which makes your donation go even further. Find more information on the government website.

Gifts-In-Kind and Pro-Bono Support

SHS greatly values the donation of venues for events and meetings, goods to give directly to the families we support and the pro-bono expertise of companies. Please do get in touch if you would like to find out more.

Get your employees involved

Employees can make a tangible difference to the lives of disadvantaged families we work with. We invite you to share your skills, knowledge, experience and enthusiasm.
