We have experience of working with a variety of companies, of different sizes and across a range of sectors. Each partnership no matter what the size or scope makes an important impact and enables us to continue our work with children and families. Our bespoke plans are focused on meeting the objectives of each individual company whilst raising vital funds to support children with brain injury. Here are some of the companies we have worked with:
"Our previous charity partner was a large national charity working on a project overseas and we couldn’t see first-hand the impact that our donations were making. By partnering with The Children’s Trust we were able to really make a tangible difference, funding equipment items they otherwise wouldn't have been able to purchase, and we have been able to visit their site in Tadworth to see the work that they are doing. Our partnership has been so successful that we are now working with them for a second year. They have been truly fantastic to work with, giving us all the support and inspiration that we need and ensuring our staff have stayed motivated and engaged throughout." Jonathan Wileman, aquilaheywood
We are now in our second year as the partner charity for Aquila. They have funded essential specialist equipment. The partnership has been a fantastic success with staff taking part in marathons, bike rides and abseils. They have organised cake sales, wine tasting evenings, auctions and raffles and volunteered at numerous events.
“We are very proud to have supported The Children’s Trust in the last two years through our award events. It’s such a worthwhile and inspiring cause. We have found the corporate team a real pleasure to work with. They are extremely professional, friendly, organised and passionate about their work and we hope our relationship with them continues for years to come.” Jenna Parker, Head of Events
After approaching Athene in 2014 to become their beneficiary charity for the Payroll World Awards the relationship has gone from strength to strength. We have enjoye working together on four of their award events in 2015.

‘’After working with many charities over the years, The Children’s Trust is the most professional, enthusiastic and energetic that I have encountered. As a result, our staff have engaged with this charity like none before and broken all previous fund-raising records.” Graham Biggs, Corporate Communications Director, BMW Group UK
“The partnership with The Children’s Trust has been fantastic. The engagement of the employees has been overwhelming resulting in the most successful Charity of the Year ever. Raising almost £1 million has been a tremendous achievement and we are thrilled that these funds will leave a lasting legacy at the charity. I know that Credit Suisse will continue this successful partnership with The Children’s Trust for the long term.” Libby Hills, Director, Credit Suisse
Following the incredible success of our Charity of the Year Partnership with Credit Suisse in 2011, they continue to be a valued supporter. Each year a large team come in and volunteer their time to help maintain the grounds at our National Specialist Centre alongside annual donations and helping at our Christmas party for the children.

“We worked with The Children's Trust on our annual Investment and Wealth Management Awards in November. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish, happy to get involved, completely professional on the night, while understanding our other priorities. This was the first time we'd partnered with a charity for these awards, and it truly added to the evening. The response from our guests was also very positive - people really seemed to connect with what is a great cause, without it in any way detracting from the main event. Jane and her team were great, and we're keen to do more with Children's Trust in the future.” Peter Dodds, Publisher, Investors Chronicle, Financial Times
We have now worked with the Financial Times for two years in a row as the beneficiary charity for the Investment and Wealth Management Awards. We have worked together to provide exceptional auction items for this event.

“The Children’s Trust were our chosen charity in 2015. We had an incredible year, raising nearly £18,000 from a combination of raffles, donations and sponsorship. The sponsorship was a result of five brave members of staff who took part in an abseil down the UK's tallest structure, the ArcelorMittal Orbit in April. We have thoroughly enjoyed supporting The Children's Trust and hope to stay in contact to hear about future opportunities.” Michelle Long, PA Team Leader, Harbottle & Lewis
Harbottle & Lewis are committed to giving time, money and resources to good causes in the most beneficial manner. They therefore support a single charity with fundraising activities each year. The Children’s Trust were chosen for 2015 following a nomination and voting process

“The Children’s Trust is a remarkable charity providing essential and life-changing services to young people who have suffered brain damage. As a car company we are aware that a lot of these injuries result from road accidents and so this partnership is very close to our hearts. It is also a great way for all of our people to feel they are giving something back to young people whose lives have been dramatically altered through no fault of their own. We look forward to making the biggest possible contribution – both in terms of energy as well as money!” Paul Philpott, President and Chief executive of Kia Motors (UK) Limited
We are delighted Kia have chosen us as their charity of the year and are looking forward to working with them and seeing their exciting fundraising activities.

‘’We see the impact car accidents can have on a family, especially children and we’re passionate about the great work The Children’s Trust does with helping children from the local area and nationally who’ve sustained brain injuries from accidents and illness,’’ Ashton West OBE, CEO.
MIB have been supporting The Children’s Trust continually since 2008 and have raised over £80,000 to date through their fundraising! We also welcome its employees twice a year to our national rehabilitation centre, who help us keep our gardens and nature trail looking their best for children and families to enjoy.
The Children's Trust was fortunate enough to have been selected as one of the benefitting charities of Property Race Day 2015. The generous donation will fund one full time Senior Play Specialist.
