Every year we’re bowled over by the tremendous support of our corporate partners and how they help us spread the word about the work we do.
Through their generosity and commitment, we can be there for people who have a learning disability and families who have nowhere else to turn.
NVT has been partnering with us since 2016, engaging their staff and family members in a variety of dynamic fundraising activities. From walking on hot coals to taking part in the Kiltwalk, our amazing supporters at NVT always approach every activity with energy and enthusiasm. Payroll giving and monthly lunch clubs are particular favourites among the staff.
The Ambassador Theatre Group knows how to put on a show, especially when it comes to fundraising. Since the launch of our partnership in 2015, ATG staff and members have shown their support in many ways – from static cycle challenges to donating theatre tickets to our members. Theatre audiences also play their part by contributing to bucket collections after performances.
MacRoberts LLP is our long-term corporate partner and we are extremely grateful for all their time and incredible support. In 2017, over 30 staff members took part in the Kiltwalk, all dressed in the ENABLE Scotland tartan. MacRoberts is also one of our headline sponsors for the ENABLE Scotland Annual Ball.
Leading professional recruitment consultancy Michael Page is our newest corporate supporter, and we’re thrilled to be working with their three Scottish offices – Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. So far, Michael Page’s annual quiz evenings have been a huge hit among their staff and clients. This partnership will also see Michael Page’s recruitment experts sharing their knowledge and advice with our ACE and ACE Youth groups, supporting adults and young people who have a learning disability to get ready for the world of work through a series of workshops.
INEOS Grangemouth are our newest corporate partner and we are delighted that their employee safety representatives have selected us as their nominated charity.
Their safety reps were extremely impressed with the impact our work has in communities local to the site as well as in those across Scotland.
Over the coming year, to cement their already excellent safety record, INEOS will be introducing a safety incentive scheme at Grangemouth based on ‘near-miss’ reporting. For each ‘near-miss’ spotted and fixed the company will make a donation to ENABLE Scotland. The funds raised will make such a difference to our work with children, adults and families and we’d like to say a BIG thank you to INEOS for being on our journey to create an equal society for every person who has a learning disability.
Covering 400 miles in three days was a challenge, but we have a dedicated team who were happy to put some time in on the saddle to support such a great charity.James – ATG
