How businesses and groups can help
If you are a member of a club or community group who may be interested in supporting local people with brain injuries, we’d love to hear from you. Some of the ways that we have worked with groups before are described below, but we’re always keen to hear new ideas too.
Collection boxes – these are a great way to raise awareness and funds for Headway Cardiff. If you think that you may be able to provide a home for one of our boxes, please get in touch.
Invite us along to talk to your group or staff – we’re always keen to talk to groups and raise awareness about brain injury and Headway Cardiff's valuable work.
Sponsorship opportunities – we are often looking for sponsorship for items such as charity Christmas cards and display boards, as well as at events like our annual conference.
Organise a ‘Hats for Headway’ Day - this really is as straighforward as it sounds. Like a dress-down day, participants simply make a small donation (we suggest 50p-£1) to spend the day wearing a hat of their choice – the wackier the better!
Make us your ‘Charity of the Month/Year’ – if your business is looking for a local charity to fundraise for, please get in touch to find out about what money raised for Headway Cardiff could mean to local people whose lives have been turned upside down by brain injury. We’d be very happy to visit your business to talk about brain injury and the work that we do .
Donations – cash donations are very gratefully received but we realise that this kind of support can be difficult for businesses. There are lots of other ways that companies can donate to improve life after brain injury. For instance, we often need raffle prizes, items to sell on charity stalls, venues for training and events, IT equipment and resources for use at our centres.
Staff volunteering - we may also be able to offer volunteering projects through our fundraising department or at our rehabilitation centres. If this might be of interest, we’d love to hear from you to discuss the possibilities.
