  • Choosing a fundraising activity
  • Accessing support from Home-Start Aberdeen
  • Preparing for sponsorship
  • Promoting your fundraiser
  • Staying safe and legal
  • Submitting funds. 

The guide also includes advice for businesses, who may wish to establish a longer-term arrangement to meet their own corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals. As a nominated charity, Home-Start Aberdeen can provide lots of opportunities for employee engagement, if desired.

What Your Support Means 

Non-financial assistance 
We completely understand that sometimes it is simply not feasible to make a financial contribution. 

Many organisations generously offer their services in kind as an alternative. 

We also offer a variety of volunteering opportunities (link to volunteer page), for organisations who allow staff time off to volunteer as part of their CSR commitment

Corporate Support

Home-Start Aberdeen offers a variety of opportunities for organisations who wish to support our work. 

Some suggestions are provided below; however, we are also happy to discuss any additional partnership ideas you may have. 

How your organisation can help 

  • Make Home-Start organisation your nominated charity for a year – or longer 
  • Hold a fundraiser on our behalf – enter a team in a sporting event or hold an in-company event such as a bake sale or dress down day. 
  • Sponsor a specific event, such as our summer trip or Christmas party for Home-Start families. 
  • Provide funding towards the training and development of staff and volunteers. This ongoing training is essential to ensure we maintain our high service standards as we deal with families’ increasingly complex needs. 
  • Allow staff time off for volunteering. This could range from rattling buckets at an annual event to becoming a trustee or home visiting volunteer. 
  • Providing services in kind. We appreciate that financial contributions are not always feasible. Instead, some local companies provide support by way of gifting us their skills, services and products. 
  • Supporting our charity shop. We are always looking for donations of good quality items. You can help by organising a company collection – or by permitting staff to donate their time as shop volunteers or drivers who can uplift collections.
