Charity of the year

We can work with you to create a bespoke and mutually beneficial charity of the year partnership that engages your employees and customers with a cause that’s important to them. By choosing us as your partner, you’ll be helping to ensure that our high impact programmes supporting young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are as far-reaching as possible.

Why partner with us?

If you choose the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust as your charity of the year, we’ll work with you to create a partnership that delivers on our shared values. A charity of the year partnership can be a brilliant way to motivate staff, helping to boost morale and encourage team building by showing your commitment to a cause that matters.

To help our partnerships flourish we provide a dedicated point of contact to manage each relationship and can provide materials and support to help with staff fundraising activity. Being a small charity also means you have the chance to get the know the wider team and become part of the Trust’s extended family of supporters and volunteers.

Payroll Giving

It’s easy to set up a company Payroll Giving Scheme, allowing employees to donate to a cause they care about in a flexible, tax-effective way and helping to provide the Trust with a regular income, allowing us to plan and budget for the future.  Donations can be made from employee’s salaries or pension. And offering to match-fund donations made can be a great way to incentivise uptake.

CAFs ‘Give As You Earn’ scheme is one of the UK’s leading Payroll Giving providers for employers. Find out more here, or contact us to discuss the options.

Strategic partnerships

Beyond the traditional charity of the year model, we can work with your company to make a long-lasting difference in transforming the lives of disadvantaged young people by combining expertise and resources. As part of a strategic partnership, we can offer opportunities for your company to get involved directly with our programmes, from hosting workplace visits, running skills workshops and providing work experience, to offering mentoring and speaking at industry seminars.

Through our social enterprise SL Consulting we can also help you to develop inclusive and diverse workplace practices, ensuring that your organisation represents your client base more closely.
