How can we get involved?
There are a number of ways your organisation can partner with us.
If you're holding a dress down day/bake sale or other exciting event at your workplace or need help promoting it, let us know and we'll add it to our events page.
We've also got some exciting corporate volunteering plans that could help with team building, your CSR plans or general interest which combined with fundraising and our wide range of services will provide your organisation with an interesting and fun day supporting older people in the city and the surrounding area.
Choose Age UK Southampton as your Charity of the Year
Please consider choosing Age UK Southampton as your business Charity of the Year. In return we would offer joint branding on our fundraising materials and our events, as well as positive PR and local media coverage.
Sponsor one of our events
Your staff could get involved in our events thoughout the year, such as our annual Bake-off contest and summer garden party. By sponsoring an event you help us with the costs, for example, food and decorations, and in return get some great PR and local media coverage.
Display a collection tin
Could you display a collection tin in your office or shop? This would help us to collect much needed donations to ontinue our vital work in Southampton.
Donate a raffle prize or service
Could you donate a prize for one of our many fundraising raffles and competitions - perhaps a bottle of wine, box of chocolates or biscuits, bath goodies, gift vouchers, or free services?
If you would like to donate a piece of equipment, we would be very grateful. We usually need raiser chairs for people in our day centre, kitchen equipment for our lunch clubs, and computer equipment for our staff.
Send employees to volunteer
Could you send a team to help out at an event or activity? It's a great way for staff to bond by working together to help vulnerable older people. Previous staff teams have served Christmas lunches, taken older people on days out, painted our day centre, and revamped our garden.
Run a fundraising event
Your employees could run their own fundraiser to help raise vital funds for our work. They could do a cake sale, dress down day, a sponsored walk or run, or a raffle. There's so many things they could do - contact us for more ideas!
