Working with us

We are committed to supporting anyone affected by crime and traumatic incidents and support hundreds of thousands of people each year. We are constantly exploring new ways to deliver improved services with better outcomes for the people we support, but we know we can’t do this alone.

Working in partnership with Victim Support can secure enduring benefits for your company while helping to raise essential funds to support anyone who has been affected by crime. Being a partner will give you an affiliation with a charity that has a well-established presence across all of England and Wales and will provide valuable opportunities for you to reach new audiences through the work we do with local communities.

We welcome opportunities to work in partnership, whether that be designing and delivering services together, developing and sharing training, or creating a cause-related marketing campaign for a product or service. We are always open to discussing new forms of partnership, so if there’s something you’re interested in that we haven’t listed below, please do get in touch with our corporate partnerships team via our web referral form to discuss further.

Staff fundraising activities provide a fantastic opportunity to re-engage your staff, boost office morale and promote team building while supporting and empowering people impacted by crime in the process.

Staff fundraising can involve at-work events such as raffles, pyjama days, bake sales, quiz nights, or even hosting a fundraising event to involve the community and expand your reach. Our specialist teams will be with you every step of the way, supporting you to explore innovative, cause-led fundraising opportunities.

This could also involve donating through payroll giving or signing up to our weekly lottery.

You and your staff can also get involved by choosing Victim Support as your Charity of the Year. Many organisations nominate a charity to support each year through business fundraising events or staff donations. Sainsbury’s DHL chose us as their Charity of the Year and held bake sales and opened a staff shop selling donated clothes and donated all proceeds to support individuals affected by crime. Please look at our Fundraising ideas page for some more information on different ways to get involved in fundraising.

Another way to get involved is through Charity Challenge. Team challenges include treks, bike rides, mountain climbs, kayaking, dog sledding, skiing and sledge hauling, taking place throughout the UK and across the world. Get in touch now to choose your Charity Challenge and create memorable, engaging experiences for you and your employees and raise vital funds for Victim Support in the process.

Corporate donations help us to improve and expand our services and support your business to make a difference while improving your brand reputation and reaching your Corporate Social Responsibility targets.

Your business could donate money, a percentage of sales, or even your own products or services as an in-kind donation to us. Ring Doorbell donated 500 doorbells to help protect people impacted by crime and empower them to feel safer after life-altering crime.

We’re here to support you to explore opportunities beyond monetary value to make lasting, meaningful change. We can offer you exposure to new, exciting sectors in a longer-term partnership focused on solving a particular issue. It’s a great way to differentiate yourself from your competitors and gain a real advantage in your sector.

We want to help you reach more audiences, maximise your impact and achieve your marketing objectives through our brand partnerships. Together, we can increase your brand visibility and recognition, gain you invaluable exposure and improve your business’s image and reputation.

Boost your revenue and generate awareness for your products through a Cause-Related Marketing (CRM) campaign. CRM campaigns involve a marketing campaign around a specific product or service from which a percentage of the proceeds or a donation comes to Victim Support.

Through a sponsorship partnership, we aim to support you to achieve positive brand exposure and differentiate yourself from your competitors while supporting you to create long-lasting change. You can engage your stakeholders and increase your reach by sponsoring caseworkers to help us enhance our services to support even more people affected by crime.

We are currently sponsored by Slater and Gordon, a legal services firm who provide us with virtual terrorism caseworkers and have given specialist terrorism training to our staff.

In 2021, Victim Support launched a new programme for women in abusive relationships aged 16 and over across England and Wales. The iMatter programme is a preventative course delivered in groups, either over Zoom or face-to-face, and focuses on close and intimate relationships and how to address conflict.

Participants can talk to others who understand what they are going through, without judgement and in a confidential way, and gain life-long skills, helping them to move forward on their journey to safety.

Domestic abuse has devastating, long-term effects on those affected, their families and their children. The number of women experiencing abuse is frightening. The Crime Survey for England and Wales estimated that over 1.7 million women had been a victim of domestic abuse in 2021-22. Our iMatter service empowers women to regain control of their lives, with the aim of building a world where women and children are free from violence and fear.

Urgent funding is required to keep our life-changing service open and continue supporting any woman whose life has been devastated by domestic abuse.

Your business could be part of the change. Get in touch with us today to make a real difference and sponsor our iMatter service.
