Corporate Partnerships

“Guideposts is a people centred charity, we care passionately about the communities we serve. We exist to ensure that people can be connected to their community and feel part of society.”

Matthew Jones – CEO, Guideposts

Who we are

Guideposts is a UK based charity working with people, and local communities, to help them access the support, opportunities and skills they need to overcome social challenges, improve their wellbeing and change their lives.

We run a range of services that are focused on helping people to achieve their potential regardless of their circumstances. We connect people together so that they can experience the joy that comes from friendship, activity, learning, purpose and occupation. We love what we do and we love seeing people flourish.

Working together

We are looking for new corporate partnerships. By working in partnership with Guideposts, your business can support people living with long term conditions, disability, or caring responsibilities to improve their mental health and wellbeing and help them feel included in their local communities.

Purpose-driven businesses earn more loyalty

Customers are increasingly looking to buy from businesses that are purpose driven. A partnership with us will help you to both meet your corporate social responsibilities and give you a more purpose driven agenda to communicate your philanthropic ethos to your customer base.

Strong opportunities for cross promotion

Brand awareness and promotion. We will promote your business to our growing community of supporters in person, at events and via our marketing channels.

Unite your staff with a shared charitable mission

A charity partnership with us will help to unite your staff in a shared fundraising goal which helps to encourage teamwork and a sense of togetherness.

Take your staff outside on corporate away days

We can offer your staff team volunteer days working on one of our programs such as dig ‘n’ grow which promotes positive mental and physical well being through working in the great outdoors.

Let’s get to know each other

We want to work with businesses who share our belief in building people up to their full potential and helping them to overcome social challenges. If that sounds like your business, then get in touch on csr@guideposts.org.uk and join the Guideposts community today, because together we can help to promote potential and change lives.

What a partnership could look like

Here are some of the team from Burford Garden Company, one of our corporate partners, visiting the nursery garden where they have kindly provided plants and gardening equipment, horticultural knowledge and advice, and a fair bit of elbow grease!
