We need your help to end youth unemployment

Working in partnership with organisations and individuals is an essential means of achieving our mission. These strategic partnerships make a real difference in improving the lives of young people.

In addition to financial support, we need your support in giving young people the best possible chance of achieving sustained education and employment. This could be through apprenticeships, work placements, CV workshops or mock interviews.

Strategic partnerships

Strategic partnerships are a brilliant way we can work together to build a better community by improving the lives of young people, develop your own internal staff and promote your organisation’s CSR.

It is important to us that our relationships with partner organisations are mutually beneficial. This is one of the reasons we have such deep and warm relationships with our existing corporate partners.

Starting a partnership with Sport 4 Life UK is really simple, and there are various ways you can get involved.

To discuss and explore an opportunity with Sport 4 Life UK, please contact our Head of Business Development Rob Wells at: rob@sport4life.org.uk, or on 0121 456 1818.

Choose us as your Charity of the Year

We are continuously humbled to be chosen as Charity of The Year for various companies.

A Charity of the Year partnership involves a company choosing to fundraise for us for 12 months or more in various ways; from bake sales, sports tournaments, challenge events, fundraising dinners and fancy dress. You name it, they’ve done it.

We’re here to help. Because your support is invaluable to us, we want to work with you to ensure staff have fun, experience unique opportunities and feel a real sense of fulfilment supporting us.

We would love to be chosen as your Charity of the Year. If you would like to talk this through, please contact us.

Pro-bono support

As part of our commitment to improving the lives of young people we work with, we partner with organisations to help prepare those in our service for the world of work.

This support can be in the form of skills workshops, employability taster days, mock interviews and mentoring. This partnership is crucial to enhancing our offering and plays a vital role in helping young people move into sustained employment.

Organisations that volunteer their expertise or knowledge by providing pro-bono support find that their staff are more inspired at work and grateful for the opportunity to engage with their local community.

Donations and fundraising

We are so lucky to have the incredible support of individuals who choose to donate and fundraise for Sport 4 Life UK.

Whether you take part in a marathon, triathlon or a cake sale – even if you create your own unique fundraising event for us, we’ll be with you every step of the way. However you choose to help, we cannot thank you enough.
