Ways to partner
Charity of the Year
Choose us as your Charity of the Year and we'll work with you on a range of exciting fundraising, volunteering and awareness-raising activities. Get in touch if you’d like to nominate us.
By partnering with a well-respected British brand like ours, you can engage your customers and inspire them to give back to the veterans who gave so much to their country. Whether you’re looking to increase sales, launch a new product or gain positive PR, we can work with you to create a cause-related marketing campaign to achieve your objectives.
We love to create partnerships with a real purpose where we align our strategic objectives. These partnerships go beyond funding and offer an exciting opportunity for pro bono working, skill sharing and collaboration to achieve a shared vision.
Volunteering and skill sharing
We believe in creating volunteering opportunities that provide real value to our charity and to the employees who donate their time. We provide opportunities that allow employees to directly support our veterans. Skill sharing is also a great way for your employees to use their knowledge and expertise in a new way to support a charity, while also developing new skills to take back to your company.
volunteering hours were donated by 1,268 volunteers to support blind veterans in need
home visits or virtual home visits were made to our blind veterans by 223 volunteers, providing crucial companionship and support
Raising awareness and campaigning
We estimate that there are many thousands of veterans in the UK who still need our support. Many of those who we don’t reach don’t know who we are or how we can help them. They need to hear about the work we do to rebuild veterans’ lives after sight loss and your support can help make this happen.
Payroll Giving, also known as Give As You Earn, is a way of giving money to charity without paying tax on it. Your donation is taken straight from your wages or pension each month before tax, which means that more money goes to charity.
Armed Forces Covenant
Businesses, charitable, and public sector organisations of all sizes who wish to support the armed forces community can sign the covenant. Blind Veterans UK is a proud signatory and recipient of the Silver Award in the Employer Recognition Scheme.
