We’re rolling out an exciting new business plan with a number of new opportunities of benefit to business, as well as our core public sector partners. This is an incredibly rewarding opportunity for forward thinking, socially responsible companies.
You can find out what we have achieved in Year 1 of our new plan, and our ambitions for the future, by the SafeWise Annual Report 2018-19
Why support SafeWise
Become a SafeWise partner organisation and get far more back in return with wide promotion and opportunities across the region . An incredibly rewarding partnership for forward thinking, socially responsible companies. Find out more about our partnership opportunities can benefit your business.
Sometimes, it’s easier, and just as helpful, to provide the charity with help in kind. For instance, construction, marketing or shop fitting. See more examples below to get your creative ideas flowing.
SafeWise programmes can help your organisation deliver the specific aims and objectives, such as helping people to eat better, take more exercise and be more physically and mentally healthy.
SafeWise programmes support core funders such as councils, police, fire and rescue to deliver their corporate aims and objectives. There may be a way SafeWise can help your organisation too.
Benefits to business of becoming a SafeWise partner include
- Positive, value for money PR exposure
- Exposure within the centres to a wide range of audiences
- Meet Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) requirements
- Volunteering, staff development and team building opportunities
- Opportunity to use the centres and facilities at a discount or as part of a package
- Promote your message to key audiences
- Build your presence and awareness across the region with a high profile charity
We offer different levels of sponsorship or in-centre promotion, depending on the level of support your company wishes to provide to SafeWise.
Help in kind
Sometimes, it’s easier, and just as helpful, to provide the charity with help in kind. These are just examples to get your creative ideas owing. Have a better idea? Get in touch!
Construction: Fancy building us a new safety house, developing a beach/water safety area, fitting out a pub or shop, or installing a bus stop? These are just a few of the ideas we have to update and develop scenarios in both Bournemouth and Weymouth!
Creating a welcome space for volunteers: We want to remodel our space to create a bigger and more welcoming space for our volunteers.
Marketing: could you do some design and print work for us? Design new signage and/or branding?
Car: We want to source a couple of 7 seater cars for both our current centres, to teach visitors about in-car safety in a practical way. Can you help? (They don’t need to be brand new, in fact a used car is more realistic).
Pub, cafe, bank or shop fitting company? We want realistic scenarios in our streetscapes, so if this is you, get in touch for a chat!
Goodie Bags: could you provide relevant information or safety/health materials for one of our programmes?
Could your team volunteer their time at SafeWise? This can provide rewarding team-building opportunities, professional development, and brilliant promotional opportunities for your business. It’s not just about doing a decorating or gardening project for us (although we’d like that too!): the professional skills of your team can be harnessed too.
The biggest function of our volunteering team requires regular attendance for tours throughout the year, in order to stay up to date. But there are plenty of other roles which might fit the bill for companies encouraging employees to give perhaps a day or two a year.
The following list is far from exhaustive. Whatever the expertise of your team, we can usually find a volunteer experience that your team will find rewarding.
Marketing: Could you support with professional brochure design, social media promotion, website development or tele- marketing to build our visitor numbers?
Event management: Could you provide management and PR for a VIP, volunteer recruitment, or teachers’ event?
Volunteer recruitment and management: does your organisation have expertise in this area? Could you help us to recruit new volunteers and develop programmes to train, coach, retain and reward them?
Get your overalls on! Your team could spend a team day decorating our safety house, or helping to fit out a new scenario!
I like the idea! What’s next?
Give us a ring on 01202 591330 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal chat and to discuss a visit to one of our learning villages.
We hope to hear from you soon and invite you and your organisation to join us in developing skill for life across our communities.
