Why partner with us? If you choose Befriend a Child as your charity partner you will be helping to ensure that we can continue supporting children and young people facing difficult life circumstances across Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire. You will not only be helping to raise funds, but you will be increasing awareness about our programmes and projects which can result in an increase in volunteer sign ups. Our volunteers are vital for the work that we do. Through providing a positive adult role model and positive life experiences our volunteers help children and young people build confidence and self-esteem as well as develop new life interests and skills. In time this can have a transformational effect. Most importantly they allow them to be a child. As our partner you will be helping to turn frowns upside down. We provide a concise 20-minute presentation for companies who would like to know more about our work, we would be delighted to share this with your workplace, this can be held at a lunch time or a time that suits you. Ahead of the presentation we will also send our charity overview and annual report, so that your team can learn more about us. Our team are available for meetings at your convenience and have worked on a range of fundraising campaigns which we can tailor to your teams fundraising interests, budgets, and targets. You will also receive our quarterly newsletter which includes details about volunteering opportunities, fundraising ideas, and information about our upcoming events.
