We will be working with other organisation to promote best practice for volunteers, beneficiaries and create the biggest possible impact together. We are exploring opportunities to collaborate with other professionals and agencies. Also, universities, to help with research to improve our innovative online activities, establish feedback mechanisms, and encourage our beneficiaries to volunteer.
We recognize that, there are times when our partners may be better placed to reach the most vulnerable or isolated groups and we work in collaboration to build their capacity to deliver activities.
We work in partnership with Job Centre Plus, we give employment-related skills to jobseekers by offering 8-week placement opportunities.
We work with Universities in Manchester to help provide work-based skills and placement opportunities to students to further increase their skills and chance of employment.
We work in partnership with NCS providing fundraising and volunteering opportunities to people on the program.
We were able to provide placement opportunities to the student from the university, providing them opportunity to develop extensive virtual support network project and how the charity will continue to improve its online services. Also, we are working to adapt our approach & develop innovative ways of working remotely.
The wellbeing & safety of all our volunteers along with that of our staffs and our primary beneficiaries is important. We are making sure we provide everyone with extra guidance, which is regularly reviewed by our duty of care team and providing ongoing befriending training.
Like all other elements of The Widows Empowerment Trust, our corporate partners are important to us. No matter how big or small your organisation is, our partnerships help engage your employees and customers to spread awareness about the problems widows and widowers can face. Through corporate partnerships, we are also able to drive donations and brand awareness around our charity, something that is vital for any non-profit organisation.
We know each company we partner with is unique and has its own brand mission, vision and strategic priorities and this would apply to any brand partnerships you enter, and this would apply for charities as well. That's why we make sure our partnership is tailor-made to your company.
A corporate partnership gives your company the opportunity to engage your customers and clients in fundraising activities and opens up for new marketing opportunities in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Our Partnership will also help you reach potential new audiences and generate positive opportunities on a local and national level. By partnering with us you will be working closely with a hands-on registered charity that has a well-established presence in Greater Manchester.
Our work relies on donations from individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations. Part of our work is by public sector funding through WELOVEMCR and Neighbourhood Investment Funding (NIF), but our organisation needs people who are willing to support our work with widows and widowers on a regular basis and this is a perfect way to fulfil your corporate social responsibility.
Individual donations, grant-making foundations, trusts and key businesses play a vital role for The Widows Empowerment Trust. Everything we do is only possible because of your generous support. Our work to promote social inclusion and reduce the loneliness widows can face is solely made possible by our supporters and funders, and our annual Christmas party is a great opportunity for networking and meet like-minded philanthropists.
If you are an individual and you wish to make a major gift, please contact us, so we can guide you through the donation process and make sure you also get the benefits you deserve.
