Shine a Light Support Service…
Become a Charity Partner…
Our corporate partners are an important part of our work and we recognise that there are advantages on both sides. We are always looking for companies and organisations who want to make a difference to people’s lives. At Shine A Light we don’t just help the child who is suffering from cancer, we help the whole family.
We believe this is important to the ongoing care needed and we feel that by helping the family as a whole we are providing a first rate service and we value everyone that wants to help us in our quest.
Your contribution matters to us and our service users and will help to transform lives of families in Coventry and Warwickshire.
Flexible, balanced partnerships
We understand that for you to support us we have to be able to work together in a mutually beneficial way. We welcome the opportunity to listen to what you would like to achieve as a partner and how you would like to make a difference. We will then offer suggestions of support and ways in which we can help you to meet your goals, thus helping our families. Together we can achieve and make a difference to the lives of families with children with cancer. Contact us now for an informal discussion
By involving your employees in a partnership with us, you can develop more cohesive teams through team building, boost staff morale and increase staff retention. We want to help you to ensure that your company profile is heightened and that your company is a desirable place to work, thus attracting good candidates for roles you may wish to fill. We can offer some great ideas and we have lots of contacts and we can introduce you to companies and organisations that manage teambuilding days with a difference. –Contact Us!
Strategic and Operational Level
We want to create a win-win situation for our partners and ourselves, and we do this through working with you at a Strategic level to achieve your goals and also at operational level, where we can work with you and your staff to make a difference to the families that we support.
Brand values and collaboration
Sharing values and understanding how we can collaborate to our mutual benefit will ensure that we are delivering change that will impact those who need it most.
