How do we achieve a mutually beneficial partnership?

  • We will hold an initial meeting with you to ask all the right questions about what you wish to gain from the partnership, your team and fundraising goals and what you require from us as a charity partner.
  • A bespoke partnership planner will be created, based on our discussions, to set out a number of exciting activities, events fundraising initiatives to involve your team and clients.
  • Regular contact will be made throughout the partnership. Feedback will be taken into account to continuously improve and strengthen our working relationship.
  • Updates and an impact report will be sent, highlighting the successes of our partnership and how your support has made a difference to the lives of terminally ill patients, and those important to them.
