Get involved Corporate partnerships Nothing bonds a team like getting involved in a worthy cause. Dementia touches many lives and people find their motivation through personal experience. We are honoured to work with inspiring business people who support us by fundraising, volunteering and through Charity of the Year partnerships. Our dedicated fundraising team will work with you to create a unique partnership that works for your business. We appreciate that every company has different reasons for working with us. Through team building, fundraising, event planning, information sessions, support and advice we can create an exciting and beneficial journey together. A corporate partnership with Alzheimer’s Support means your business can play its part in ensuring a high level of care and support continues for those affected by dementia in your local community. Case study - Gough's Solicitors Wiltshire solicitors Gough's approached us in 2018 with a view to choosing us as their Charity of the Year. They already knew us well through giving talks about legal affairs at our regular training courses for family carers. We set up a dedicated fundraising appeal page through our website, created personalised partnership materials and Laura, our community fundraiser, visited all seven offices to talk to employees about the charity and what we could achieve together. Goughs teams have undertaken some epic challenges, including climbing Snowdon, and are now planning an abseil in the Mendips - perfect for team building. We have had regular review meetings to discuss new ideas and Goughs staff have loved volunteering at our day clubs and community groups. This is where they can see how the money they have raised is spent - and gain valuable insights into our cause. We have also provided personal support and advice for members of staff affected by dementia in their own families. We were all so touched by the level of personal care and attention Alzheimer’s Support offers that we really want to help them make a real difference to so many people throughout Wiltshire. Emma Taylor, partner Case study - apetito The UK headquarter of this international organisation is based in Trowbridge, so when they chose dementia as their charitable cause, they decided to not only support the Alzheimer’s Society nationally, but also to create close bonds with their local dementia charity, Alzheimer’s Support. This relationship has grown over the past years. Apetito staff have raised significant funds for us through a range of in-house activities and individual efforts - handing over a staggering £50,000 in the past three years. Employees have helped with other behind the scenes support, helping to design publicity materials and providing the food for our annual Gala Dinner for people living with dementia. More than 20 of the company's employees have spent a day club at Mill Street, to familiarise them with our work first hand, and many have undertaken longer placements. And when we launched our new fundraising initiative Denim4Dementia in 2018, apetito staff were the first to don the demin and be the public face of the new campaign. I want all of you to experience what I did when I first went to Mill Street Club. To see the vital work that takes place and what a difference it makes to people's lives. The same people we cater for in our industry and who are at the heart of our developments. Lee Sheppard, director of public policy apetito, speaking to staff at the company annual Leadership Conference, where Alzheimer's Support CEO Babs Harris and colleagues contributed to the sustainable and ethical segment of the day. Make us your charity of the year and you will receive personalised support throughout the partnership, tailored to your needs. Let’s get started!
