We are very grateful to the organisations that have supported us locally and nationally over the years. Many Kent businesses have experienced the difference we make in the local area and have since provided advice, voluntary, in-kind support or match funding, having a direct impact on how we improve the lives of people with a learning disability.
Developing these strong links has established more of an inclusive attitude towards people with a learning disability and made individuals feel more confident about accessing businesses in their local community. From a sales assistant knowing when someone might need a little more time, to someone with a learning disability having the confidence to apply for a job there.
Whether you are an independent or a local branch, part of a team or manage one, if you want your business to be more involved with the community, we can work together to change the lives of those who do not always feel a part of it.
Examples of ways in which your business could support us, include:
- keeping collection tins,
- offering reduced fees for resources,
- donating raffle prizes,
- fundraising for our latest appeal, and
- volunteering at our clubs and events.
As a thank you, we will promote your business both on- and offline, from posts and tweets to newsletters and newspapers.
