There are several ways your business could partner with Age UK Solihull, whether it's supporting us with a one-off activity or choosing us as an official partner for the year.

Choose Age UK Solihull as your Charity of the Year

Shaking hands.pngChoosing us as your Charity of the Year would mean that we could work closely together to get to know your business and develop a mutually-beneficial partnership over a year (or more). We would support you with fundraising activities and volunteering opportunities, and we would offer joint branding on our fundraising materials and our events, exposure to our supporter-base as well as positive PR and local media coverage.

Our current and past Charity of the Year partnerships

For example, by sponsoring an event you help us with the costs and in return get some great PR and local media coverage for your business.

Our sponsored challenges

Display a foreign coins tube

You can collect all tender in the tubes, including foreign and out-of-date currency. When your tubes are full, a courier will collect it and drop off a replacement set, the cash will be counted and valued, and a payment made to us. We will of course let you know how much was raised from your tubes.

Product Promotion

Donate a raffle prize or service

We always acknowledge your donation at the event and in our marketing materials.

Send employees to volunteer

Run your own fundraising event

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Untitled design (18).pngWorld Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) takes place each year on 15 June. Every year, Age UK Solihull teams up with Solihull Safeguarding Adults Board Business Team for the campaign, which encourages organisations involved in the care sector and the wider public to pledge to help stamp out abuse in older people.

We ask our supporters to wear purple – as a symbol colour for dignity – or organise purple themed events and make a donation to Age UK Solihull.
