HOW YOUR BUSINESS CAN HELP
As a registered charity, we rely heavily on funding, businesses and members of the public to continue providing services to young people of Warrington
FUNdraising – Getting your staff involved
Fundraising can be fun and a bit of healthy competition across staff teams can really drive staff morale. Your staff can get involved in a number of ways other than fundraising, this can involve volunteering some time to the club, becoming a mentor or taking on a challenge.
Championing our events – Corporate sponsorship
The Club runs several fundraising events each year attracting many supporters. For each event, there is a variety of opportunities for sponsorship which will raise the profile of your company.
The Business Club
Our Business Club was launched in 2018 for local businesses to network and support Warrington Youth Club. Meeting quarterly, the members will have the opportunity to hear from a guest speaker and to network with like-minded businesses in the region. There are a number of benefits for joining our Business club for example; members will be featured in our bi-monthly newsletter distributed to our ever-growing database and you can access our in-house training courses; Health & Safety, Child Protection & Safeguarding, Data Protection. In addition members can use our Helping Hands and Skills Sharing programmes to run your own events within your network to raise money for WYC which in turn have been proven to boost morale within the workplace, improve team working and employee interaction, make your business the place to be!
Gifts In Kind
As a charity, sourcing expensive items of equipment can sometimes be out of our reach. We are always on the look out for donations of equipment such as sports goods and arts and craft materials. The Club also hosts several events for our members throughout the year, including Halloween and Christmas parties any suitable donations such as decorations, Christmas toys or raffle prizes are always gratefully received.
Charity of the Year Partnerships
Why not make Warrington Youth Club your chosen charity for one year? Together we can make a difference to the lives of young people and also help raise the profile of your company – its a perfect way to raise staff moral by getting them to back a great cause. And of course, you’re welcome to come to the Club and meet some of members to see exactly where your money goes!
Along with our youth club based at The Peace Centre, we also have “The Skills Bank” which is aimed at 16-25 yr olds to support them into further training or employment. We run job clubs and enterprise programmes weekly and would be interested in reaching out to businesses for their knowledge and guidance. This could include delivering a session on your area of business, running work placements or even taking on a young person as an apprenticeship.
