We believe that every Care Experienced person should have a lifetime of equality, respect and love.
If you think your organisation or company can support us in our vision, get in touch by emailing Kerry Shearer our Fundraising and Partnerships Manager here
Corporate partnerships can take many different shapes, including volunteering, gifts in kind, employment and fundraising.
Here are some examples of our current partnerships.
Mactaggart & Mickel
Our members often tell us that once they leave care, the accommodation they end up in often doesn’t feel like a home.
This is where Mactaggart & Mickel come in. They’re a company that don’t just build houses – they create homes. Mactaggart & Mickel’s employees kindly volunteer to carry out essential repairs and refurbishment for our Care Experienced members. This donation in kind helps make their accommodation a home to be proud of.
Mactaggart & Mickel’s support doesn’t just stop there, along with walking the Kiltwalk for Who Cares? Scotland and supporting our Love Rally, they also agreed to be headline sponsor at our inaugural Gala for Love black tie dinner at Prestonfield House, Edinburgh.
Birchbrae Lodges – Early in 2020, Jim and Pauline from Birchbrae Lodges, Glencoe contacted Who Cares? Scotland via a family connection. Through their well-established luxury self-catering lodges business, they devised a fundraising initiative to support our work. Throughout the year, guests will have a chance to donate to our charity. We also provided literature for their noticeboard, so guests can learn more about Who Cares? Scotland. Jim and Pauline also donated terrific prizes which we can use to raise even more funds.
Wee Blue Coo – The owner of Wee Blue Coo is Care Experienced and she wanted to give something back. Wee Blue coo specialise in unique cards and artistic prints. To raise vital funds for Who Cares? Scotland, they designed a range of products taking their inspiration from our Care Family tartan. These products are on sale with all profits going to Who Cares? Scotland. The team from the Wee Blue Coo also joined us on the Love Rally and marched alongside our Care Experienced members. They have also committed to doing the Kiltwalk too.
From large corporations to family run businesses, there are many levels of support that can have real impact on the lives of Care Experienced people in Scotland today. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to find out how your organisation can show that you care.
With thanks to Scottish Local Authorities, funding partners and donors who make our work possible.
